Thursday, May 27, 2021


The 60-Second Lectures have been a Penn Arts & Sciences tradition since 2003. Prior to the pandemic, you could find the School’s faculty on College Green every spring and fall, taking a minute to share their perspectives on a range of topics. As the world faced unprecedented challenges in 2020, the series went virtual and gave scholars a continued opportunity to share their insight and expertise.
