The UCLA Luskin Transdisciplinary Speaker Series hosts speakers from across the social sciences whose work on issues of public affairs cuts across disciplinary boundaries. Our hope is to foster an intellectually rigorous and publicly meaningful seminar program that will draw together faculty members from Public Policy, Social Welfare and Urban Planning, as well as interested students and engaged members of the community.
The inaugural event of the UCLA Luskin Transdisciplinary Speaker Series will explore the experiences and politics of black Americans since 1900, the subject of a new book co-written by Professor Hunter.
