Monthly Dialogue Series

CIRS's Monthly Dialogue Series is designed to present interested community members with a forum for quiet, thoughtful dialogue with scholars about their latest academic endeavors and their research agendas. Each month, a leading scholar discusses his or her latest work and research interests with community members.
