The ASEF Seminars for Spring 2011

February 15, 2011, Volume 57, No. 22

The Association of Senior and Emeritus Faculty (ASEF) of the School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania has organized for the past seven years a program of seminars presented by senior or emeritus faculty on topics of their expertise which are diverse and transcend academic disciplines.

The topics represent an in-depth account of a particular practice or a controversial issue of broad interest to the senior and emeritus faculty.  The current series promises to provide a rewarding intellectual experience.  All are welcome to attend.

The titles, speakers, and dates of the seminars are:

Robotic Head and Neck Surgery from Concept to Clinical Application; Bert W. O’Malley, Jr., chair of the department of otorhinolaryngology; March 7

Sound Change in Philadelphia: New Light on an Old Problem; William Labov, professor of linguistics; April 11

Going Home to Glory: A Memoir of Life with Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961-1969; David Eisenhower, director of the Institute for Public Service of the Annenberg School of Communications; April 27

Hearing Loss and Aging: New Methods of Diagnosis and Treatment; James Saunders, emeritus professor of otorhinolaryngology; May 5

The luncheon talks will be held at noon in the University Club. More information about these talks can be found at the ASEF website: www.med.upenn.edu/asef
