Faculty Colloquium Series

The Faculty Colloquium offers faculty an opportunity to discuss a work-in-progress with colleagues from different disciplines. 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 this is not a lecture, and thus, is 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 (SUBSCRIBE to the 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.


In compliance with recommendations surrounding COVID-19, our Colloquium Series is being hosted online for the Fall 2020 semester (and potentially for Spring 2021).
