We are pleased to announce the rebirth of the Wa, our informal departmental talk series!

Starting this Fall, the Wa will meet Mondays at 12noon for an hour of impassioned intellectual camaraderie.  Talks will range from informal brown-bag discussions to well-advertised Colloquium Talks.  Speakers may present talks they've already delivered elsewhere, practice talks for upcoming conferences, in-progress studies in need of feedback, or off-the-wall theoretical proposals.  All are encouraged to speak: faculty, visiting scholars, post-docs, and graduate students.

To get things started, we will meet biweekly in the Fall quarter. The first Wa speaker will be Prof. Ed Hutchins, on Monday, October 11, 12noon-1pm, in CSB 180.  Let's pack the room, and have a vigorous discussion!  The Wa will meet every other week after the 11th, with talks by Prof. Sarah Creel, Prof. Rafael Núñez, and Leo Trottier.
