Public Events

Periodically, Beta of Colorado sponsors Colorado College events, including lectures by Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholars. In the spring of 2009, the chapter welcomed Betty Smocovitis of the University of Florida, who delivered the lecture, "Singing His Praises: Darwin and His Theory in Song and Musical Production." In the spring of 2010, Beta of Colorado co-sponsored a lecture by Charles Mills of Northwestern University on "Racial Liberalism." Jack Goldstone of George Mason University delivered a talk on "Global Population Trends and How They Shape Our Future Well-Being" in the fall of 2010; Nina Rattner Gelbart of Occidental College lectured on "Frenchwomen of Science in the Age of Enlightenment" on 28 April 2011; and Larry Silver, the Farquahr Professor of Art at the University of Pennsylvania, spoke on 16 November 2015 about "India Ink: Euope's Earliest Views of the Subcontinent."

In response to the challenge of cultivating and engaging a diverse academic community, Beta of Colorado revived its Deliberation Workshop Series in 2015-16, with a first speaker visiting in March 2016.  Ana M. Martínez Alemán of the Lynch School of Education at Boston College, who led that workshop, also delivered the following public lecture the afternoon before, on the following topic:
