Friday Seminars

The McNeil Center sponsors a seminar that meets on Friday afternoons at 3:00 pm approximately twice a month between September and May, with the paper for each session circulated in advance. Over two hundred people attend at least once a year, with an average attendance of 40 to 50 at meetings held at various sites in the Delaware Valley. While most of the regular attendees are graduate students and faculty from institutions in the Philadelphia area, participants come from as far afield as Long Island, New York City, Princeton, Baltimore, Annapolis, and Washington. 

As Penn has lifted its restrictions, all are invited to attend in person. Masks are required in the seminar room. In order to get an accurate count for the post-seminar happy hour, we are asking that attendees RSVP to mceas@sas.upenn.edu. Visitors to campus are also required to comply with Penn’s Coronavirus policies.  For more information, please visit:  https://coronavirus.upenn.edu/content/visitors. To get access to the seminar papers and Zoom links, or to join our mailing list, please email us at mceas@sas.upenn.edu.
