UC’s popular “Life of the Mind” lecture series resumes next month as UC faculty members present varying perspectives on the theme of “identity.”
CCM Assistant Professor of Ethnomusicology Stefan Fiol will join UC President Gregory H. Williams and Associate Professor of Political Science Laura Dudley Jenkins for this discussion on Tuesday, April 10 from 3:30 – 5 p.m. in the Russell C. Myers Alumni Center. A full list of participating faculty and more information is available here.
“Life of the Mind” is free and open to the public and attracts a broad audience including UC students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as people from the community.
“Life of the Mind” features interdisciplinary conversations with UC faculty around a one-word theme followed by audience Q&A. Each quarter, there are two “Life of the Mind” sessions with three “thought provocateurs” contributing to each session.
At the April 10 event, three distinguished faculty members will address the theme from unique and diverse perspectives:
- Stefan Fiol, Assistant Professor of Ethnomusicology, CCM, “The Performance of Identity”
- Laura Dudley Jenkins, Associate Professor of Political Science, McMicken College of Arts and Sciences, “Identity Improvisation”
- Gregory H. Williams, President, University of Cincinnati, “Identity – Two Centuries of Uncertainty”
“Life of the Mind” is co-sponsored by the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, the Chair of the University Faculty, and the UC Libraries.
