Great Conversations

Speaker Series 2021

Two thought-provoking topics presented by distinguished faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno.

For the past 15 years, the College of Liberal Arts has brought distinguished faculty into community homes to facilitate meaningful conversations in an intimate setting. A great conversation can expand your perspective, change the way you see things and give you knowledge and understanding that you did not have before.

The Great Conversations series has historically been an in-person, subscription-based, annual-speaker series. However, due to the challenging times and to ensure attendee safety, we made some modifications to the 2020-21 season, including reducing the overall number of events and converting them into a virtual format. Additionally, the College has waived the subscription fee and will be making these events free and open to the public.

The 2021 season will feature two of our outstanding faculty whose talks will provoke meaningful discussion on topics of national importance. The lineup includes conversations about bioethics and restorative justice, topics of vital interest today as we hear calls for criminal justice reform and better understanding of the ethics of new scientific and medical discoveries.

Additional information about these events can be found below. Stay tuned for registration and login information.
