For nearly 40 years, Lawrence University has sponsored a program of informative luncheon lectures for the Fox Valley community. Known as “Lunch at Lawrence,” these gatherings provide an informal opportunity to hear from a diverse group of Lawrence faculty and distinguished visiting faculty on a wide range of issues and topics.

All lunch programs are held on Fridays at 11:30 a.m. in the Warch Campus Center. The cost of each luncheon is $16.50 and advance registration and payment is required.

Decolonization, Activism and Hope: Changing the Way We See Native America
Come get a sneak peek into one of Lawrence University's newest Ethnic Studies courses taught by Professor Brigetta Miller, an enrolled member of the Stockbridge-Munsee (Mohican). Hear her tell a bit of her own personal story as a contemporary Indigenous woman who grew up on a reservation in northern Wisconsin and share tidbits of how the photography of Matika Wilbur (Swinomish/Tulalip) inspired her to include the innovative "Project 562" into her course.  At this lunch you will get a glimpse of some of the breathtaking photographs from "Project 562" and hear sound-bites of citizens from a variety of federally recognized tribes from across the United States tell their powerful personal stories. Students in this course will be asked to produce creative interdisciplinary projects that engage with the community and highlight one of the four themes presented: remembrance, resistance, redemption, and reconciliation. At this Lunch at Lawrence, the beauty of Native American culture will be shared from an insider's perspective offering hope at a critical time in our nation's history.
