Spring UO Insight Seminars Explore Multiple Cultures

The schedule has been set for the popular UO Insight Seminars for spring term, 2014. Spring term also features two free public lectures that introduce material covered in more depth in the full seminars. All sessions are held in Knight Library's Browsing Room unless otherwise noted.

The schedule is below. To learn more about the individual seminars and to register, visit the Insight Seminars page.

UO Insight Seminars provide an opportunity for the general public to re-engage with the liberal arts and experience the intellectual fulfillment that is the hallmark of a university education. The seminars focus on the humanities, particularly on “meaning of life” topics of keen interest to adults. They are aimed at people eager to return to real college-level reading and study. The seminars are noncredit and ungraded. Led by UO faculty members who are experts on the topics, the seminars require careful reading of both primary and secondary materials.
