The Personally Speaking Series

The Personally Speaking series is designed specifically for our community—in the community. We invite you to attend a lecture, which spotlights a faculty member's scholarly research from a recently published book as well as the personal motivations for pursuing the research.  Following the lecture, attendees are invited to engage in conversation directly with the speaker. 

The author/professors who are chosen to be speakers strive to excite, to entertain and, always, to educate us all about their research efforts. Learn something new, whether the field is psychology or religion, political science or English, or any other of the liberal arts and sciences! The series is hosted by the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences with J. Murrey Atkins Library and  The Dubois Center at UNC Charlotte City Center.  Each event is about 75 minutes long.
