This lecture series showcases the pioneering work of the eminent University of Chicago faculty who teach in our Master of Liberal Arts (MLA) program. Like the MLA itself, these lectures span disciplinary boundaries to rigorously pursue big ideas, providing new insights into timeless questions and the current world around us. Recent topics have included the neurobiology of empathy, the foundations of humanistic inquiry, our evolving understanding of the cosmos, and the role of nationalism in identity formation.
