60-Second Lectures

Every spring and fall, Penn Arts and Sciences faculty take a minute out by the Ben Franklin statue in front of College Hall to share their perspectives on topics ranging from human history and the knowable universe to fractions and fly-fishing. 

The lectures have been a Penn Arts & Sciences tradition since 2003. More recently, the series has provided a platform for Penn and its experts to address the unprecedented challenges faced by our society, including the global COVID-19 pandemic, the enduring legacy of racism, and the ever-present threat of climate change
