Spotlight Lecture Series

2022-23 Spotlight Lecture Series: Human In The Data

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 2022-23 series will focus on how data—their collection, analysis, and the research questions that rely on them—connect to the deeply personal lived experiences of individual human beings and to the human condition at large. Events are held on Thursdays from 3:30-5:00pm and may be attended in Northrop’s Best Buy Theater or online via Zoom. The series is FREE and open to the public, and Q&A sessions will follow each event.
