Colloquium Series

The Glasscock Center hosts colloquia of works-in-progress throughout the year. The colloquia offer faculty and graduate students an opportunity to discuss a work-in-progress with colleagues from different disciplines. The colloquium series is comprised of Glasscock Center Fellows (Internal Faculty Residential Fellows, Glasscock Faculty Research Fellows, and Glasscock Graduate Research Fellows) for the current academic year. By long-standing practice, colloquium presenters provide a draft of their current research, which is made available to members of the Glasscock Center listserv. Each colloquium begins with the presenter’s short (10-15 minute) exposition of the project, after which the floor is open for comments and queries. The format is by design informal, conversational, and interdisciplinary.

Please note that these are not lectures, and thus, are not suited for class attendance. The Colloquium Series is intended to provide the presenter with a forum to discuss his/her research and receive feedback from people who have already read his/her paper. 

The Center makes the papers available in advance by providing a non-public URL to all who are on its listserv. To request the URL for an individual paper without subscribing to the listserv, please contact the center in a timely manner at glasscock@tamu.edu or at (979) 845-8328.
