Living Room Learning Lecture Series

Author Talks
Wednesday, Jan 17 2024 to Wednesday, Feb 28 2024 @ 2pm

Back for its 55th year, Living Room Learning was started by Sweet Briar College alumnae. The series offers university-level lectures for lifelong learners who seek to expand their knowledge without having to take a final exam. Join us for this 7-week daytime lecture course held each Wednesday, January 17th– February 28th.

Over the past several years, the series has gradually been working its way through 20th century history and has now arrived at the 1980s. We hope you’ll join us for this year’s course, Marching Through the 20th Century: The 1980s, which begins on January 17, 2024. The series will focus not only on the milestone cultural and historical developments in the United States, but takes a global perspective with lectures on the former Soviet Union, Europe, and Latin America.

All lectures will take place in McElreath Hall. Doors open at 1:30pm and lectures begin promptly at 2pm with a brief intermission. Parking is free.
