University; the colloquium is a weekly gathering of the entire department, at which a faculty member or guest talks about his own research or a related topic.
Without doubt the most fascinating talk given at the colloquium was the plenary lecture by David Audretsch.
The colloquium is a two-day workshop on the future of the justice system.
I would have preferred this meeting to have been called a colloquium instead of lecture - a dialogue of doubts and assertions on the subject that concerns us.
The colloquium is a half-day program attended by some 2,400 teachers, students, and members of the public.
On Friday, as they have for 29 years, those few - the museum's curators - will speak at the ROM's research colloquium, which is free with admission.
One important theme explored by the colloquium is the changing shape of ethnic politics in the country.
The first part of the colloquium was the Executive Education course in Harvard's Kennedy School of Government where the 19 women participants presented their respective work and country situations to the graduate students and faculty members.
Clearly foreign policy is a four year colloquium which is difficult to grade after only the first semester.
I appreciate also the helpful comments offered during presentations at a Notre Dame political science colloquium, as well as talks given to the Rooney Center research workshop.
