Distinguished Lectures Series & Thursday Lecture Series
The OLLI Distinguished Lecture Series consists of ten lectures held on Tuesday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m., once per month from September through June. The speakers are well-informed experts from town and gown who share their specialized knowledge in an engaging manner. Each lecture is just the beginning; a stimulating question-and-answer period follows most sessions.
There are five OLLI Thursday Morning Lecture Series each year. Each series offers six lectures on a unifying theme and a variety of speakers covering specific aspects of the theme. Learning continues in an active question-and-answer period following each lecture.
This five themes for 2020-21 are:
- Poverty, Inequity, and Disparity (9/10-10/15)
- 1619-Present - The Many Consequences of Slavery: The Cost of Historical Injustices (10/22-12/3)
- Advances in Science (1/14/21-2/18/21)
- Graphic Books, Memes, and More (2/25-4/8)
- Central America: Coffee to Caravans (4/15-5/20)
- Summer Lecture Series
Lectures are presented from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. on Thursdays online.
