Colloquia

Each year IPR organizes a series of talks featuring IPR and Northwestern faculty, as well as faculty from other universities, presenting their research on some of the day’s most socially relevant topics. The events, typically free and open to the public, showcase the progress those experts have made in various branches of IPR’s research areas, including the Institute’s signature, interdisciplinary Fay Lomax Cook Monday colloquia.
