60-Second Lectures - In Quarantine
Every spring and fall, Penn Arts & Sciences faculty take a minute out by the Ben Franklin statue in front of College Hall to share a unique perspective in one minute or less. This semester, 60-Second Lectures go digital as we seek to understand this difficult and unique moment in time. A wide variety of scholars and experts will shed light on the pandemic, including the science; the complex social, cultural, historical, and economic issues; and the response here on campus.
