Wednesdays at the Center
2010 - 2011
Wednesdays at the Center (WATC) is a topical weekly noontime series in which scholars, artists, journalists, and others speak informally about their work in conversation with the audience. Begun as a collaboration between the FHI and the John Hope Franklin Center (JHFC) for Interdisciplinary and International Studies, WATC is now (as of Spring 2011) co-organized by the JHFC and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies. The FHI will continue to offer publicity support for the series and present individual programs within the series 2-3 times a semester.
WATC is held most Wednesdays during the academic year, from 12:00 to 1:00 PM, at Room 240, John Hope Franklin Center (2204 Erwin Road, on the corner of Erwin and Trent).
All events in the series are free and open to the public. A light lunch is served. No reservations are necessary, and vouchers to cover parking costs in the Duke Medical Center parking decks (#2 and #3 in this map) are provided.
