Ernst Breisach Faculty Research Colloquium Series

The Department of History began the Brown Bag Lunch Series in fall 2009 as a means for faculty members to present new research projects or report on research trips to encourage dialogue within the department and the WMU community. The name was changed to the Ernst Breisach Faculty Research Colloquium Series in recognition of Dr. Ernst Breisach's contributions to scholarship and WMU's research mission.

Through this series, undergraduates have the opportunity find out more about their professors' research interests and graduate students can participate in scholarly debate. The format of these talks is based on a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and answers. A lunch of pizza and pop is offered for presentation attendees courtesy of the Burnham Macmillan Endowment.
