Local Academic Events, Beyond Historical Studies

This page includes postings of notices about events happening locally, beyond the School, that have been received and that appear to be of potential interest to our Faculty and Members.  The list includes some events that will take place at the Institute, but the majority of events listed here are scheduled to take place elsewhere around town.

Please note that this is not a complete listing of everything happening in Princeton.  It reflects only notices received by the School.  The majority of notices posted here come from Princeton University, but not every event in every department will appear.  More complete listings of happenings sponsored by a particular university department can be found on the university's own departmental "Events" pages

The list below also does not include the School's own colloquia series which is posted separately. A more comprehensive list of events sponsored by the School is also posted separately.  The Institute Calendar lists events happening around the Institute more broadly.
