2021 - 2022 Laurier Milton Lecture Series

Overview of Lecture Series

Wilfrid Laurier University, the Town of Milton and the Milton Public Library are pleased to present the 2021-2022 Laurier Milton Lecture Series.

Wilfrid Laurier has long supported the public role of academics to bring their knowledge and thinking outside of the classroom. The Laurier Milton Lecture Series provides a wonderful opportunity to engage in a public dialogue with citizens of Milton on a broad array of important topics. We are pleased that the presentations represent the current research and analysis of members of different faculties, departments and programs. For those who attend a minimum of 5 lectures, you will be entered into a draw for a giveaway. In partnership with the Milton Public Library and Wilfrid Laurier University, the giveaway will be drawn following the final lecture in April 2022 and the winner will receive a range of items from Laurier and Milton Public Library. 

The lecture series is a partnership between the Town of MiltonWilfrid Laurier University, and the Milton Public Library.

Lectures take place the second Wednesday of each month starting October 2021 until May 2022 from 7-8pm. Lectures will take place via Milton Public Library's Crowdcast channel. Registration required. Registration is free.
