Tentative UCHV End-of-Year Reception/Dinner

An important weekly calendar note about the 2017-18 academic year is the weekly fellows’ seminar that meets Mondays at lunchtime. About twelve of these seminars will be devoted to presentations by visiting faculty and fellows of work-in-progress. Papers are pre-circulated so that the seminar can be devoted to intensive discussion of the work. The idea is to help our visitors get to know Princeton faculty and each other, and to help our faculty get to know all of you. Fellows are expected to attend, so please mark holds on your calendar for Mondays to avoid scheduling conflicts.

Over the course of the year, the Center also sponsors and co-sponsors a variety of programs and events at Princeton. Some of these programs include: The Program in Ethics and Public Affairs seminar series, the Political Philosophy Colloquium, the Ira W. DeCamp Bioethics Seminar series and a variety of lectures series including the Tanner Lectures on Human Values and the James A. Moffett ’29 Lectures in Ethics series. These all typically take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 4:30-6:00pm, with a reception and dinner to follow. Visiting faculty fellows and faculty are frequently invited to dinners associated with these events and encouraged to attend.
