Patten Lecturers ordinarily spend a week on the Bloomington campus, delivering two public lectures that appeal to a general audience, and meeting with interested faculty and students in classes and in informal gatherings. The Patten lectureship stipend is $15,000 plus funds for travel and living expenses while in Bloomington. It may be possible to arrange for longer stays in conjunction with a visiting academic appointment or a fellowship in the Institute for Advanced Study.
