Brownbag Series

School of Sociology Brownbag Series

The School of Sociology hosts a brown bag lunch series of talks every Friday of the Fall and Spring and semesters. Guest speakers are drawn from other University of Arizona departments and from Sociology departments around the country. Speakers focus on recent research, although the focus of research highlighted in the talks varies broadly to engage diverse sociological interests. Talks are held at Noon in Social Sciences Room 415. Speakers take a short break during Q&A just before 1:00pm to excuse those that have engagements at 1:00p. Discussion then continues until approximately 1:15p. See our Calendar of Events or download our Google Calendar for a list of upcoming talks.
