Giving community members a special opportunity to experience the conversations that drive innovation at the university, in the fall quarter of 2018, the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture presents the inaugural offering of “10 Questions,” an interdisciplinary course/public event series hybrid, featuring conversations with leading scholars from across the university. Every Tuesday evening for ten weeks, four UCLA faculty members from disciplines as diverse as dance, medicine, photography, astrophysics, athletics, Chicanx studies, law, philosophy, religious studies, and more will join Dean Brett Steele to explore one question each week, stimulating dialogue and exchange, and seeding a greater understanding of the profoundly interdisciplinary nature of knowledge production in the 21st century. Both an upper division undergraduate course and a series of public conversations open to the broader community, "10 Questions” will provide a platform for vibrant conversations that engage multiple disciplinary viewpoints:

Nov. 6 : What is a Body?
Nov.13 : What is Failure?
Nov.20 : What is Work?
Nov.27 : What is Knowledge?
Dec. 4 : What is University?
Oct. 2 : What is Space?
Oct. 9 : What is Time?
Oct. 16 : What is Beauty?
Oct. 23 : Freedom?
Oct. 30 : What is Memory?

The general public can RSVP to attend 10 Questions sessions on an individual basis and access the “course website”:"
