Round Table Topics

Most of you know that every week during the semester we have a Round Table discussion in Butler House (the Honors dorm). These are usually faculty members from various disciplines who come and talk (briefly!) about their field and then open up for discussion. It is a great way to get to meet faculty in a smaller and more relaxed environment (food!). We will do that this semester and I would to ask that you please post in the Comments your suggestions for faculty and/or topics that you would like to discuss at these Round Tables. Remember! It is open to everyone.

But of course... I imagine that you all would also like to discuss the changes at Tulane. Who (aside from President Cowen, although I won't rule that out) would you like to hear from? For example, perhaps one of the Newcomb advisors? Or the Tulane College Dean? Please let me know that as well.


  • Dean Poneroff (sp) of the law school on Alito's confirmation hearing, and the ways in which the supreme court is likely to change (if it is) from this appointment and Chief Justice Roberts replacement of Rehnquist.

  • I'd very much like to hear from some of the engineering faculty in terms of changes at Tulane. In a wider scope, Reed Kroloff, dean of Architecture, would surely have some interesting insights on the rebuilding of the city.

  • I was thinking about majoring in Anthropology. It seems like an interesting field. Perhaps we could have someone come and talk about Anthropology? Sorry for the lack of specifics.

  • Don't worry about specifics! This is brainstorming. Great ideas so far. Please keep them coming!

  • someone from the medical school, for people who may still be considering Tulane Medical School, which seems to be undergoing a lot of its own "re-invention." Thanks for taking our comments.

  • How about a discussion about the city? There are major environmental and social consequences. I'm not sure who'd come in for this, though
