The Covid-19 pandemic has led to numerous restrictions across campus, including the postponement of the Graves Lecture Series. And, unfortunately at this point, we are unsure about the Spring 2021 Series. However, though we have been unable to host Grave Lectures during the pandemic, many past lectures are still available to us.
The Graves Lecture Series began in August 2006 and since then, we have hosted over 100 presentations. This event features scholarly, thought-provoking presentations on a wide variety of topics. Generally, the featured speakers are CSC Faculty and/or CSC Staff. Also, on occasion, community members and stellar CSC students have presented.
A few of the past presentations were discussions on:
- Bighorn Sheep
- Coen Brothers
- Echoes of Venice
- Piano/Saxophone performance
- Lewis and Clark
- Insider look at Sports information
- Multi-Exposure Photography
- Lessons for Living Longer
- CSC Presidents
- Cultural Assimilation
- Future of Higher Education
- Student perceptions on Campus Police
The speakers have the opportunity to choose their presentation topic and title and also have the option of having their presentation live-streamed. If you are interested in viewing previous presentations, they can be found at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3A530AD3750A0789).
The presentations have typically been held on Tuesday evenings at 7pm in the Sandoz Atrium. If you are interested in being a featured speaker, know someone who is interested, and/or want more information, please contact Shawn Hartman at email@example.com or 308.432.7059.
