The name, A Movable Feast, is taken from Hemingway's memoirs. In his memoir, he writes "If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." We hope this program will encourage reflective conversations with students and faculty that will stay with students after their final class at Georgetown.

"The professor invited us to his home, which was a much more casual setting than the classroom, and where we felt like we could have a much more interactive conversation than during lecture."
"I really feel like I got to know a different side of Prof. Ryan. He is so kind and really cares about his students and this meal gave us an opportunity to get to know him as a person, not just as a professor."
"I simply enjoyed the opportunity to chat with my professor over dinner. I feel as though I got to know him better and was able to talk about some of my own background. Overall, it was a very rewarding experience."
