Branigin Lectureship

Branigin Lectureship

Supported by an endowment from the estate of IUB alumna Gene Lois Portteus Branigin, the Branigin Lecture Series brings to the Bloomington campus distinguished interdisciplinary scholars, artists, and public figures from all fields whose work contributes to the scholarly and creative vitality of the university community.

During their visits, Branigin Lecturers deliver a major public lecture and meet with a variety of faculty and student groups. Visits last normally from two to three full days. The stipend is negotiable and includes travel and lodging expenses.

Selection of Branigin Lecturers is made by the IAS Director.
