Special Events

83The Brown Bag Colloquium is a one hour formal presentation given by one of the core faculty members of the department or a visiting scholar about their current research. All Brown Bag Colloquium events are free and open to the public. Since it is held around lunch time attendees can bring a lunch with them, although it is not encouraged when we have guests coming from countries where this is considered disrespectful. These events are great opportunities for those interested in the study of religion to get to know one another and learn about and discuss each others' research.
