2013-14 Presentation Series

2013-2014 is the 100th anniversary of the founding of Pomona’s Phi Beta Kappa chapter. To celebrate our centennial, the chapter will host a series of talks, including presentations given by departments/programs at Pomona, to spark a campus conversation on liberal arts education. Except where noted, each event will be held in the Frank Dining Hall Blue Room at noon. All members of the Pomona College community (faculty, staff, and students) are invited to attend. The cost of the lunches will be covered with the generous support of the Office of the President. For more information, please contact Professor Mary Paster.
