Life of the Mind

The second in the 'Life of the Mind' lecture series on the theme of 'Security' is scheduled for Tuesday, October 30 from 3:30-5pm in the Russell C. Myers Alumni Center.
Free and open to the UC community and public, 'Life of the Mind' features interdisciplinary conversations with UC faculty around a one-word theme. Each quarter, there are two 'Life of the Mind' sessions with three 'thought provocateurs' contributing to each session. Each scholar provides a 15-minute talk followed by audience Q&A and a reception with light refreshments.
At the October 30th lecture, three distinguished faculty members will address the theme from unique and diverse perspectives:
  • Adrian Parr, associate professor in the School of Architecture and Interior Design and the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences, 'Securitybound: Cities in the 21st Century'
  • Henry R. Nasrallah, professor of psychiatry and neuroscience, College of Medicine, 'Unstable Cortex (UC): The Jurassic Park of the Human Mind'
  • Richard J. Harknett, associate professor of political science, McMicken College of Arts and Sciences, 'When Big Brother Meets Lord of the Flies: The Challenge of Cybersecurity'
More about 'Life of the Mind' can be found online via the Libraries website.
