Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government


Ashbrook Colloquium

The Ashbrook Center cordially invites the public to participate in the Ashbrook Colloquium, the purpose of which is to dedicate particular Friday afternoons to informal discussions of an academic nature. We schedule an impressive list of academic scholars to lead these discussions by introducing recently published projects on which they have been working and opening the program up to questions and comments.

Our intention is to provide a forum for the discussion of a wide series of topics. We have three such meetings each semester, always on Friday afternoons at 3 p.m. in the Ashbrook Center on the eighth floor of the University library. Although we expect each discussion to formally last about an hour and a half, attendees may come and go as they wish. We introduce the guest, let him take no more than twenty minutes to characterize the subject, and then open the topic to discussion.
