The Jay Nathan, Ph.D., Visiting Scholar Lecture Series
Jay Nathan, Ph.D.
The Jay Nathan, Ph.D., Visiting Scholar Lecture Series invites international scholars from the emerging democracies and the countries in political and economic transition to visit the University of Scranton to address issues that will enlighten and benefit students, faculty and the community-at-large. Its purpose is to enrich the intellectual life or share a cultural exposition in the arts or music for both The University of Scranton and our Northeastern Pennsylvania community. This annual lecture initiative will highlight the research and contributions of guest scholars of international repute who will visit the University to discuss timely and timeless subjects. While visiting campus, scholars will deliver presentations on topics of interest to the academic community and meet informally with attendees, students and faculty.
