In its 76th year, the Hamilton Hall Lecture Series on World Affairs continues the rich tradition of hosting internationally respected speakers. This season the Series will be held virtually with eight lectures on Thursdays at 11 a.m. during the months of February and March. As is our tradition, there will be an opportunity for you to ask questions of our speaker, an important part of our Lecture Series. In addition, we are delighted to continue to offer a second option for enjoying the Lecture Series by replaying each lecture on the following Sunday at 5 p.m.
