With a Side of Knowledge

By University of Notre Dame

A college campus is a destination for all kinds of interesting people, representing all kinds of research specialties and fields of expertise. With a Side of Knowledge, which is produced at the University of Notre Dame, invites some of these folks out to brunch—yes, we said brunch—for an informal, 30-minute conversation about their work. Some guests are members of the Notre Dame faculty, but many are visitors from elsewhere who have come to our campus to do anything from give a lecture or performance to participate in a fellowship program.
