The CCA will host a series of lunchtime roundtables with its curatorial team of faculty in the arts to facilitate a conversation of duration and contemporary art. The CCA Lunchtime Roundtables will invite an interdisciplinary group of faculty and students to informally present their own work and research with the goal of shedding light on specific areas of scholarship on campus and in the world related to ideas of empathy.
