Janus Open Seminar Luncheons

*Please find our new website at www.janusforum.org*


Janus Lunch Seminars, organized by the Janus Fellows, bring students together to discuss a political topic over lunch.  To get discussions started, attendees are asked to read a couple of short articles on the topic beforehand.  These readings range from excerpts of John Locke's theory of property to the latest opinion pieces in the New York Times.   With the exception of a few optional discussion questions we provide based on the readings, the conversation is completely steered by the students who attend.  Any student is welcome to review the reading and come to the Faculty Club for a free lunch and a stimulating conversation!
