----------------------------------
The Rome Center Lecture Series was initiated in 2007 as a forum for faculty in residence at the Rome Center to share areas of expertise with one another and with the greater academic community of Rome. Today both faculty teaching Rome programs and guest scholars are featured. Students and faculty in residence at the UWRC as well as from other universities, foreign cultural centers, and academies are invited to attend.
