Hamilton College Lecture Series

Since 2008, Hamilton College and The Other Side have collaborated on an eight-lecture-per-year series that brings scholarship down from the ivory tower on the hill to the gritty center of the city.

Our focus in the series has been largely on preserving the humanities which are are under attack as impractical in these career-and technology-focused times. Past topics have ranged from the geology of the Green Lakes to Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones, from the economics of locally sourced food to the “world’s worst epic poem.”

The talks are free but donations are welcome. They typically run about 75-90 minutes with a half-hour provided for Q&A and conversation.
