The Kearns Center for Leadership and Diversity in Arts, Sciences, and Engineering at the University of Rochester would like to invite submissions from advanced Ph.D. students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior faculty to deliver a lecture in the Charles Augustus Thompson Lecture Series: Leadership and Diversity in Action. This series consists of two talks per semester by scholars who are contributing to current literature on diversity broadly stated, with particular reference to issues of race, ethnicity, gender, and identity. Accepted lecturers will deliver a lecture in Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, or Engineering, on a topic related to their work. In honor of Charles Augustus Thompson, the first African American to graduate from Rochester, this lecture series began in the spring of 2013 and has already gained a lot of attention in the Rochester community. All lectures take place on the campus of the University of Rochester.
To be considered, please submit an abstract of the work to be presented (1-2 pages), and a CV to Douglas Flowe, Graduate Recruitment and Retention Specialist: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please combine all materials into one pdf and send if possible. Please visit our website here: http://www.rochester.edu/college/kearnscenter/ThompsonSeries.html. The deadline for applications is August 10.
