The Inquiry and Insight Lecture Series promotes dialogue among visiting scholars, community supporters, students, faculty members, and staff. This year’ s speakers represent diverse fields and issues related to psychology, poetry and fiction, philosophy, politics, social anthropology, and history. All of the speakers have made substantive contributions in their respective fields. Over and above their impressive s cholarly achievements, they share two traits. They have been able to make specialized concepts accessible to interdisciplinary audiences. Additionally, they have been able to enkindle their passion for learning in others. As a group, they embody the academic values that have provided the foundation for learning and research at this university.
