FPA Currents is an annual lecture. The topic for the lecture will vary, but the theme will always be at the intersection of politics, policy, journalism and current affairs.
The name of the series – FPA Currents – has several overlapping meanings. Firstly, it is held in the River Building which is adjacent to the Rideau River – hence the “Currents.” As well, it is an event that is squarely focused on current affairs and the Faculty thinks of currents as “moving forward,” which ties in to FPA’s five-year plan called “Moving FPA Forward.”
The event takes place in September.
