In Loving Memory of Chris Chitty: We mourn the loss of a friend and vibrant member of our academic community. However, his work is not lost and will continue to act on this world. We would like to invite everyone to join us for a reading and celebration of Chris’s academic writing in place of the presentation that he would have given on this day. This is an invitation to get to know Chris through his work or get to know him better. Everyone should feel welcome and encouraged to attend. There will be light refreshments and space for discussion after the readings.
The Friday Forum is a graduate-run colloquium dedicated to the presentation and discussion of graduate student research. The series will be held weekly from 12:00 to 1:30PM and will serve as a venue for graduate students in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Arts divisions to share and develop their research. Light refreshments will be available.
