Sensorium Lunchtime Seminar Series (Winter 2022): Dr. Roberta Buiani
The Lunchtime Seminar Series is a weekly event which aims to foster interconnectivity between faculty, graduate students, visiting scholars and artists within the School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design. This casual series will host a variety of scholarly presentations by both York and visiting researchers who want to interface with our community and share their work.
The sessions take place weekly on Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Lectures will be virtual until it is safe to gather in-person, at which time it will be a hybrid format, with in-person sessions at Sensorium Loft Space (4th Floor CFA, Room M333) and a virtual stream for those who cannot attend in person.
