Profs and Pints is resuming talks in venues based on national, state and local public-health guidance and the decisions of the venues themselves. Please see the Web page for your city for details. Profs and Pints will continue to offer some talks online and to maintain a repository of the recorded versions of online talks. See listings of talks that you can watch from home on the Online Talks page. 

 Profs and Pints, which is based in Washington D.C., is expanding to other cities where it has built substantial followings with the excellent online talks that it offered during the pandemic. Accordingly, it is looking for partners—including colleges, community organizations, philanthropies, socially conscious investors, and corporate sponsors—who can support its efforts to democratize access to higher learning and provide scholars with new audiences.
