Traditionally, the 60-Second Lectures have taken place once a week. This fall, we’re doing something a little different: All the lectures will take place on Wednesday, September 14, starting at noon at the Benjamin Franklin statue in front of College Hall. In the case of inclement weather, lectures will be held in the Reading Room at Houston Hall.
