EVENT DESCRIPTION


Rotman Dialogues are events based on a specific book or reading, that are facilitated by Institute graduate students. Conducted much as an author-meets-critics event, these informal discussions begin with a brief introduction by the author, followed by questions from the one or two graduate students chairing the session. Finally, the dialogue is opened up to everyone in attendance.

The Rotman Dialogues planned for this term are listed below. Some events will be held in conjunction with graduate seminars, and some will be offered by speakers taking part in the annual Rotman Speakers Series. Full details will be emailed to all Rotman members prior to each event.

For individuals interested in participating who are not currently members of the Institute, please email Deborah Fox for further information.
