PUBlic Professor Series

The University of Lethbridge is proud to present the PUBlic Professor Series, a monthly, thought-provoking lecture series that brings a range of experts and researchers from across the arts and sciences to the community for a spirited conversation.

This series builds upon the great success of the Public Professor column, co-edited to Dan Johnson and James Linville, in the Lethbridge Herald. A total of 146 regular Saturday columns were published over 3 years, by faculty describing some aspect of their research.

These talks are built on the style of Café Scientifique that started in the late-20th century as an informal discussion about scientific subjects. They were never intended to be lectures. They provide insight into issues of popular interest to the general public, and in turn provoke questions and encourage an open dialogue.

This series runs annually in the months of September, October, November, January, February and March.
