A bibliography and exhibit of the 2019 creative and scholarly works of UC's faculty and staff will accompany the lecture and be available online.
Sponsored by the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost, and organized by the University of Cincinnati Libraries, Faculty Senate and the Faculty Enrichment Center, the mission of Life of the Mind is to celebrate UC faculty research, scholarship and creative output and to foster the free and open exchange of ideas and discourse. 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.
