Endowed with a gift from Gregory G. Flynn '86, P'20, P'20 and Julie A. Flynn P'20, P'20, this lecture series enriches undergraduate humanities culture at Brown University by bringing high-profile speakers to the campus and creating opportunities for undergraduate students to learn from exciting visitors. Each visit includes a public lecture and a separate seminar-style meeting with undergraduate students.
In the context of COVID-19, programming for the Greg and Julie Flynn Cogut Institute Speaker Series is on a temporary hiatus for the 2019–20 academic year. Speaker nominations submitted for the 2019–20 academic year will be taken under consideration in the review process as programming resumes. New nominations should focus on the 2020–21 academic year and beyond.
We welcome nominations from undergraduate students and faculty. Potential course tie-ins should be mentioned, and we are especially interested in visitors who are known beyond academe (high profile writers, journalists, and public intellectuals, for example).
Please submit speaker nominations through this form. We welcome nominations throughout the year. Nominations submitted before February 28, 2021 will be reviewed by faculty and students affiliated with the Cogut Institute in the Spring 2021.
