Saturday University Lecture Series
Delve into new themes every season with a different speaker each week. Challenging, thought-provoking, and sometimes surprising, this long-running and always popular lecture series incorporates audience discussion as experts from around the world join us to share their insights on Asia throughout time.
Expanded my world view tremendously.
2023 – 2024 series
SAM’s Saturday University Lecture Series is back with a full slate of fascinating speakers on a range of topics. The series will draw inspiration from
Renegade Edo and Paris: Japanese Prints and Toulouse-Lautrec, focusing on the art of 18th- and 19th-century Japan as well as the ways in which culture travels across geographic boundaries. Speakers include noted scholar of 18th-century Japan Julie Nelson Davis from Pennsylvania State University, Javanese music expert Christina Sunardi from the University of Washington, and Boston College’s Aurelia Campbell, an authority on China’s Forbidden City. Mark your calendars for this exciting new season of Saturday University—you won't want to miss it!
