Since its inception, the Center for Austrian Studies has offered a regular series of presentations by scholars in a wide variety of disciplines: the humanities, social sciences, fine arts, business, and medicine. CAS seminars range from descriptions of academic works-in-progress to presentations about more general subjects including reports of current events in Austria and Central Europe. The lectures are free; students, staff, and the public are cordially invited to attend.
