Giving community members a special opportunity to experience the conversations that drive innovation at the university, in the fall quarter of 2019, the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture presents 10 Questions: Centennial Edition, an interdisciplinary course/public event series hybrid, featuring conversations with leading faculty, distinguished alumni, and experts from across the university and beyond.

Every Tuesday evening for ten weeks, experts from disciplines as diverse as dance, psychology, astrophysics, Chicanx studies, law, philosophy, biology, and more will join choreographer and Associate Dean, Academic Affairs Victoria Marks to explore one question each week.

As a marquee event for UCLA’s yearlong Centennial Celebration, the Centennial Edition of 10 Questions provides a platform for vibrant conversations that engage multiple disciplinary viewpoints, seeding greater understanding of the profoundly interdisciplinary nature of knowledge and knowledge production, while offering a robust framework in which to envision and activate the role that the university can play as it embarks on its next 100 years as the world’s leading public research university.
