Wednesdays at the Center (W@TC) is a topical weekly series in which scholars, artists, journalists, and others speak informally about their work in conversation with the audience. This semester the John Hope Franklin Center is proud to collaborate with partners across Duke and throughout the larger academic community to present a discipline diverse series.
Join us on Wednesdays throughout the semester from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm in the Franklin Center’s Ahmadiah Family Conference Hall, room 240. A light lunch is served at each event.
