Wednesdays at the Center Series

Wednesdays at the Center_Collage

Wednesdays at the Center is a topical weekly series in which scholars, students, artists, journalists, and others speak informally about their work in conversation with Duke students, staff, faculty, and community members. The series, which began in March 2006, typically welcomes audience members every week throughout the academic semesters over the lunch hour. All events in the series are free and open to the public. 

Fall 2021

This Fall, events will be held in a virtual, hybrid or in-person format according to university guidelines at the time of the program. 

Please check the upcoming events here.

The Wednesdays at the Center Series is hosted by the John Hope Franklin Center and organized by the Duke University's Center for International and Global Studies and other partners. Recordings from the events are made available on the Franklin Center’s YouTube channel.
