Colloquium Series

One of the enduring foundations of the Ostrom Workshop has been the Monday Colloquium Series, which commenced in 1973. The series has provided a forum for a breadth of presenters and topics over the years that have echoed the themes of the Ostrom Workshop’s research program. 

The presenter’s paper will be available in advance of their presentation for participants to read. The presenter will have five minutes for clarifications followed by audience comments and discussions. 

LOCATION: Ostrom Workshop, 513 N. Park (Tocqueville Room)
TIME: 12:00–1:00 p.m.

The Colloquium Series is live streamed (unless indicated otherwise). Presentations are open to the public, and you are welcome to bring your lunch.
