Nominations are accepted from chairs or directors. Multiple nominations from a department, center or program will be accepted. Lecturers should be distinguished in their fields and should be outstanding speakers who can address general audiences effectively. Nominations of individuals from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in their fields are particularly welcome. In addition to presenting a public talk, each lecturer generally meets in more informal settings with faculty and students of the nominating department.
Nominations should be addressed to the appropriate divisional committee and sent to Michaela Aust (email@example.com).
The annual application deadline will be 15 December
