CORNELL UNIVERSITY: University Lectures Committee - Messenger and University Lecture Nominations

Tuesday, October 1, 2019 - 17:00

The University Lectures Committee is calling for nominations for two lecture series: a) the Messenger Lecture and b) the University Lecture to be considered at the Committee's next meeting. The Cornell Messenger series provides funding to bring scholars from around the globe to the Cornell campus for a series of lectures. A Messenger schola is expected to present three or six lectures at the University. The University Lecture series is designed to bring to campus a speaker whose single lecture is likely to have wide ranging appeal. The Messenger and University Lecturers are selected by the Cornell University Lectures Committee which is composed of both faculty and students. Both lecture series provide an honorarium and also provide for travel, lodging, receptions and publicity related to the lectures. The committee also considers requests for support of conferences, colloquia, and workshops related to the lectures. Such events should have wide appeal to the Cornell community.

Deadlines for Submissions: April 1 - events from September 1 to December 15; October 1 - events from January 15 to May 15
