Spotlight Lecture Series

2021-22 Spotlight Lecture Series

The University of Minnesota Spotlight Series (formerly known as both the Honors Lecture Series and Northrop Lecture series) is a collaborative partnership between Northrop, the Institute for Advanced Study, and the University Honors Program to present lectures, panel discussions, exhibits, and other events throughout the academic year around a topic of timely interest. The six-part 2021-22 series, hosted in partnership with the Minnesota Humanities Center, focuses on patriotism, public service, and civic engagement. The moderator for all six events will be Kevin Lindsey, CEO of Minnesota Humanities Center. All events are Thursdays 3:30-5:00pm and may be attended in Northrop’s Best Buy Theater or online via Zoom. Q&A sessions will follow each event. View a full list of this year's lectures on the Northrop website!
