• Saturday, Sept. 29, at 11 a.m. (Columbia game): Larry Bartels, the Donald E. Stokes Professor in Public and International Affairs, on "Economic Inequality and American Democracy."

• Saturday, Oct. 6, at 11 a.m. (Hampton game): Daphne Brooks, associate professor of English and the Center for African American Studies, on "Bring the Pain: The Politics of Black Comedy and Satire in the Post-Civil Rights Era."

• Saturday, Nov. 10, at 10 a.m. (Yale game): Sydney Johnson, men's basketball head coach and a 1997 alumnus, on "The Challenge of Adding to the Legacy of Princeton Basketball." Following the game, the Alumni Association and the Asian American Alumni Association of Princeton are co-sponsoring a 5 p.m. lecture by Anne Cheng, professor of English and the Center for African American Studies and a 1985 alumna, on "Asian America: Race and Fantasy."
