Academic Year 2015-2016

The CAHSS Intellectual Conversations draw from the knowledge and expertise of full-time faculty members from Nova Southeastern University. The series explores the faculty's diverse areas of interest in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences. In addition to mentoring students in independent research projects, guiding travel-study experiences, and participating in the development of their fields through publications and involvement in their disciplines' global communities—faculty members support the college mission by sharing their experiences with students through these insightful campus lectures that convey their passion for education and research. These events are free and open to the public.
