Planned LOC Talks


In the light of Ohio State's suspension of face-to-face classes and move to virtual instruction for the rest of the semester, all in-person LOC talks have been canceled. WE WILL HAVE TWO LIVE VIRTUAL TALKS THROUGH ZOOM, WHICH WILL ALSO BE RECORDED FOR ASYNCHRONOUS ACCESS AFTERWARDS. See schedule below; your instructor will give you details about how to access the meetings. (last updated 4/6/2020).
