Every year, the Center for Ideas and Society sponsors a FREE series of faculty conversations for the communities in and around the Riverside and Coachella Valley areas. The Series is conveniently held in Riverside at the UCR Extension Center, and in the Coachella Valley at the UCR Palm Desert Center.
Entitled "Disciplines in Dialogue,” the series asks two or more UCR faculty members from different fields (and hopefully, schools or colleges) to engage one another, and the audience, in a discussion of a topic of mutual concern. Each topic will be hosted in two locations: Tuesdays at UCR Extension from 3:30 – 3:45 p.m., and Wednesdays at UCR Palm Desert from 6-7:30 p.m.
2019 Series Title: How Far We’ve Come: Conversations on Health, Peace, Equality, and Animal Ethics. In celebration of the Center’s 30th anniversary, we will reflect on the history of thought and development in each of the four topics-- and ask where research might lead us in the future.
