Event Series

Food for Thought Seminar


This monthly series is inspired by the Center’s long tradition of hosting Friday lunch, which for decades has convened students, scholars and faculty to share a meal, exchange thoughts on Europe, and build community.

As the pandemic makes it impossible to come together for lunch, the "Food for Thought Seminar" series will aim to convene our community virtually to explore a diverse array of topics relative to food – from European food culture to food’s environmental, social, security and public policy implications and impacts.
