Disciplines in Dialogue

Join us for a FREE series of conversations on the risks we may not want (or be able) to avoid.

Part of our Disciplines in Dialogue (formerly ‘Dueling Disciplines’) series, each discussion features two UC Riverside professors offering distinct perspectives on the selected topic. This year’s expanded series is hosted in conjunction with the UCR Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and the UCR Palm Desert Center.

Each monthly discussion will be hosted twice: on select Tuesdays at 3:30 PM in Riverside and Wednesdays at 6 PM in Palm Desert.
