About The Downtown Lecture Series

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences – “The People College” –  focuses on 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 with the general public.  Every year, five faculty members take the stage of the Fox Tucson Theatre to talk about their research and what it reveals about people.  This year, the series will explore “food” and its connections with health, culture, and the environment.

We host the lecture series at the historic Fox Tucson Theatre instead of the UA campus because we support efforts to promote our city’s urban core as vibrant and intellectually engaging place to live, work, and play.  Lectures are every Wednesday starting October 15 and going through November 12. Although free and open to the public, the lectures are ticketed. Tickets are available at the Fox Theatre box office starting at 4:00pm on the day of the lecture.
