Throughout the academic year the LACIS sponsors a wide array of public events, including special lectures by visiting scholars, conferences and panels, films, concerts and other cultural events, and informal discussion series (Click here for our previous events). Announced in the monthly LACIS Calendar, these events can greatly enrich students' academic experience. Students should visit or email the Program office to check bulletin boards and keep LACIS apprised of their addresses. Program graduate students are urged to attend events whenever possible. Suggestions for topics and speakers are always welcomed.
