Boston – The Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University presents the Fall 2007 Faculty Forum Chats series. The forums bring students and faculty together in an informal setting to discuss a variety of engaging subjects. The series seeks to promote dialogue and cultivate the personal interests of students from all schools and colleges, as well as to provide them with access to BU’s distinguished faculty outside of the classroom.

Faculty Forum Chats are open to all Boston University students and are held on Thursdays from 3:30 – 5:00 PM in the Richards-Roosevelt Room on the first floor of Mugar Memorial Library, 771 Commonwealth Avenue.

The Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University seeks to capture and document history by collecting the manuscripts from individuals who play significant roles in the fields of journalism, poetry, literature and criticism, dance, music, theatre, film, television, and political and religious movements. With collections from more than 2,000 notable figures, the Center strives to preserve the documents and make them readily available to researchers while administering all legal copyrights and restrictions. The Center also presents extensive exhibitions, seminars and tours for students, parents, alumni, various visiting groups and members of the public.
