[title bar for Interdisciplinary Seminars]

The Kinsey Institute sponsors a series of interdisciplinary seminars for Indiana University faculty and graduate students. The purpose of the seminar series is to address topics that relate to sexuality and lend themselves to interdisciplinary discussion. A presentation is followed by comments from one or two invited discussants from different disciplines, then open for general discussion.

Seminars are held in The Kinsey Institute Conference Room, Morrison Hall 313. Those attending should take the stairs to the third-floor reception area. You are welcome to bring your lunch for the noon talks.

All seminars are held in Morrison Hall 313, 12-1:30 pm, unless stated otherwise
