The Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities sponsors many lectures and events during the academic year. Our field is interdisciplinary and as a result the topics explored in our events are very diverse. Visit the pages below to find lectures and events that are of interest to you.

The Montgomery Lecture Series

This series of lunchtime lectures is presented weekly throughout the academic year. Presenters are MH&B faculty and special guests, and the topics are diverse. The lectures run every Thursday from noon to 12:45pm in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Building. They are for students, faculty, and the general public. Lunch is provided. Formerly called “Special Topics in MH&B”, this series was renamed in 2013 for Emeritus Professor Kathryn Montgomery.

The Bresnahan Colloquium Series

A colloquium is an informal meeting for the exchange of views, usually led by a different person at each meeting. Ours are offered sporadically, typically as a way for outside guest to engage with our students and faculty. This series is named in honor of Emeritus Professor James F. Bresnahan and is open to all in the Northwestern community.
