Alumni across the country are invited to join in celebrating the bicentennial with this virtual faculty lecture series. We'll kick off our fall semester with Professor of Political Science Fred Baumann reflecting on his time at Kenyon. Everyone's Kenyon is different and still somehow similar to everyone else's. Baumann sees his experience at Kenyon as that of someone who was at times, and to some degree, an insider, but yet who always remained an outsider. His ruminations about Kenyon might thus be irritating, comforting or both.

200 Years of Learning in the Company of Friends Lecture Series

As part of Kenyon's yearlong bicentennial celebration, this six-part virtual event series will highlight some of the College's best known faculty members, including several Trustee Teaching Excellence Award winners. The events will coincide with the academic calendar — including a summer break — and cover a variety of topics in the fine arts, humanities, natural sciences and social sciences. Here's a look at the fall line-up:

Sept. 5: Professor Fred Baumann, "My Time at Kenyon"
