Welcome to the 2012-2013 Great Conversations Speaker Series! Presented by the College of Liberal Arts, the series includes four thought-provoking topics presented by distinguished research faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno. The quality of this year's speakers is unsurpassed.

Each evening is scheduled from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. beginning with hors d'oeuvres and drinks, followed by our guest speaker's presentation, questions and open group discussion. Each subscription is fully transferable. If you are unable to attend a particular conversation, you may invite other family members, friends or colleagues to be present.
