Tuesday Cafes are a chance for faculty and staff to come together for a light lunch and some learning. Talks are aimed at a general audience and include plenty of time for Q&A.
Tuesday Cafe’s current format is a cross between Vogue’s 73 questions and a Reddit “Ask Me Anything.” Each informal interview session will feature a faculty or staff member answering questions about what they do (and don’t do) every day. We hope it will be a fun and interesting way to learn about the profound and mundane dimensions of the different kinds of work done at Swarthmore.
Open to all Swarthmore faculty and staff.
This year’s Tuesday Cafes won’t be recorded, but recordings of many of the past Tuesday cafes are available upon request.
