The Last Lecture Series featuring Dr. Elise Blackwell, English

The "Last Lecture" series invites faculty  to give a lecture as if it's the last one they'll ever give. It showcases the academic and personal interests and passions of faculty members on the USC-Columbia campus in an informal setting. Faculty compose a hypothetical talk on any topic of their choosing. 

The purpose of these lectures is to allow professors and students to encounter one another outside of a classroom. Lecturing professors have the opportunity to speak on topics that are significant and intriguing to them. The lecture series helps connect students with the central purpose of a college education — the encouragement of intellectual curiosity.

Scholars United invites you to nominate your favorite professors by e-mailing lastlectureatusc@gmail.com.  Nominations are accepted on a continuing basis. 

Refreshments served, and the event is open to the public. Coordinated by Scholars United.

Location: Gressette Room
