From noon to 1 p.m. each Wednesday or Thursday, a member of the Bucknell faculty will speak at a bring-your-own lunch. The goal, said Hilbourne Watson, professor of international relations and spring 2007 Global Forum Seminar Series coordinator, is to "stimulate exchange and discussion on a range of topics and issues that pertain to globalization."
