The Developmental Brown Bag (DBB) is a speaker series dedicated to investigating developmental origins, trajectories and mechanisms. Speakers consider development from a cognitive, social, and cultural perspective.
The DBB takes place on Mondays from 12pm-1:30pm in Metcalf Research Building, Room 305 (Dome room).
Talks are open to all members of the Brown community.
