Celebration of Diverse Cultures

We all have unique stories to tell. Our wonderful Physics community is made up of people spanning various cultures. At the University of Chicago Physics Department we commemorate each other through the celebration of our diverse cultural background. We welcome any member of our community to share their story and culture in hopes of creating an inclusive environment that amplifies the voice of each individual. Please see the following list of upcoming events, and if you would like to participate or leave any comments or suggestions please do not hesitate to contact Julian Cuevas-Zepeda.

These movie nights are currently held via Zoom. Check back for relevant links!
