Back by Popular Demand is a series of one-hour, stand-alone talks that are based on past AIL courses and lectures. The phrase has long been used in AIL catalogs to designate the return of earlier courses. This series aims to celebrate the rich history of AIL courses and the meaningful connections we make with each other in the process of participating. 

The goal of each session is to offer both existing and prospective members a chance to experience AIL’s style of lifelong learning in a social environment. Join us for a 40- minute talk followed by a brief Q&A session. There will be opportunities to socialize before and after the talk.
