Colloquium with A. Parsegian

Colloquia

The colloquia are held every other Friday according to the posted schedule from 3:30 to 4:30 in Flarsheim Hall room 310. Please join us at prior to the presentation starting at 3:15 for coffee, cookies, and conversation.

The UMKC Department of Physics and Astronomy hosts the university’s longest running colloquium series. Part of what has led to such a long and successful tenure is the diversity of the speakers and the wide array of fields that they come from, including those beyond the traditional boundaries of physics and astronomy. Additionally, the hosted speakers are invited to present a talk on any topic of their interest, not necessarily just their most recent or active area of research. The openness to content, diverse fields of study, and set of perspectives from academia, government labs, and industry has maintained the popularity of the series throughout the years.
