FPA Currents will not be held in September 2018, but we look forward to offering it again next year!

FPA Currents is an annual lecture held in September. 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 Richcraft Hall 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.
