Here at Bwog, we do our best to bring your attention to important guest lecturers and special events on campus. If you notice any events excluded from our calendar or have a correction, let us know in the comments or email

Check out Bwog’s event’s calendar, which will attempt to compile every campus event across departments and student groups into one easily accessible Google Calendar! We’re still working out some technical difficulties on our end, but if you have any suggestions, issues, or want to make sure your event is included, drop us a line in the comments or by emailing

Student Event Spotlight

A new semester means new student events! If your club or organization is interested in having your event featured in our weekly roundup, please submit them to or DM us on Instagram @bwog.


  • On Wednesday from 5 to 7 pm, there will be a talk with Eula Bliss about her new book Having and Being Had, an exploration of how capitalism affects our lives and value systems. This event is apart of the Narrative Medicine Rounds series hosted by the Division of Narrative Medicine in the Department of Medical Humanities and Ethics at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. You can register for the event here.
  • Also on Wednesday from 5 pm to 6:30 pm, Columbia Journalism School and the Center for Public Integrity will be hosting a panel discussion about how disasters and their aftermaths challenge mental health by exploring the intersections between social inequality and disasters. The event will touch on the combined impact of COVID-19 and extreme weather ravaging the country and world. You can register for the event here.
  • Also on Wednesday (the last one, I promise) at 7:30 pm, Columbia University School of the Arts will be hosting a lecture with Catherine Lacey, a 2010 graduate of Columbia’s Creative Nonfiction MFA Program and author of three novels. You can register for the event here.
  • Lastly, on Friday from 12 pm to 1 pm, there will be an event with Sally Herships, award-winning journalist and director of the audio program at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, titled “Podcast Essentials: How to Write for the Ear.” The workshop will help participants adapt to writing for the ear as opposed to writing an academic paper. You can register for the event here.
