About The Downtown Lecture Series

The University of Arizona's College of Social and Behavioral Sciences is the “The People College.”  We study people and their connections with each other, their pasts, and the world around them to better understand the complexity that shapes their daily lives.  The Downtown Lecture Series is designed to share those insights by inviting UA faculty to take the stage of the Fox Tucson Theatre and share their work.  This year, the series will explore “food” and its connections with people's health, culture, and environment.

We host the lecture series at the historic Fox Tucson Theatre to promote downtown Tucson as vibrant place to live, work, play and learn.  The lectures are every Wednesday evening beginning October 15. They are also free and open to the public. Get your ticket at the Fox Theatre box office starting at 4:00 pm on the day of each lecture.  

Can’t make it downtown?  Thanks to our partnership with Arizona Public Media, we are able to bring the Downtown Lecture Series to you live via an online broadcast.  Join one of the many groups gathering to watch the lectures live, including groups in Green Valley, Oro Valley, and Phoenix.  And if you miss a lecture, you can check back here and watch the recordings.
