Brown Bag Seminar Series

The brown-bag seminar series is a long-standing tradition of the iSchool. These informal sessions serve as both an opportunity to invite colleagues from other places to visit Syracuse and as a vehicle to have colleagues here share out their research. The sessions are informal and collegial, the expectation is for interactive engagement among the audience and speaker. Timing is flexible, but weekly. Most often these happen across the noon hour and people are invited to eat their lunch as they participate. A list of future and past brown-bag talks is posted here.
