Summer Wednesday Night Lecture Series
The Wednesday Night Lecture Series, hosted during the summer term by the Graduate Institute at St. John’s College in Annapolis, is a less-formal version of the college’s formal Friday Night Lectures. The Wednesday Night Lectures are an opportunity for tutors and for graduates of the college who are pursuing academic careers to present the first fruits of their thinking to an attentive and inquisitive audience.
A question period follows each lecture. They’re held in the Great Hall at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays unless otherwise noted. Lectures are free and open to the public.
