Since 1998, there has been an added twist to football Saturdays at the University of Iowa – a lecture series called Saturday Scholars. All lectures are held on football Saturdays at 10 a.m. in Room 40, Schaeffer Hall, on the UI campus.
This year’s Saturday Scholars lectures include, on Oct. 4, “Media Culture and the Sexy Girl,” by Meenakshi Gigi Durham, associate professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications; Oct. 25, “Tandem Stories: Travelling Iceland By-cycle,” by Steve Thunder-McGuire, associate professor in the School of Art and Art History and in cirriculum and instruction in the College of Education; Nov. 1, “Herbal Products: They’re Organic but Are They Safe?” by David Wiemer, professor of chemistry; and Nov. 15, “Maps and Their Makers: Decidedly Deliberate Deceptions and Distortions,” by Marc Armstrong, professor of geography.
The talks, sponsored by the University of Iowa’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, are free and open to the public.
