April 5, 2011,  It was announced today that Dr. Carlo Montemagno, Dean of UC’s College of Engineering and Applied Science has joined a panel of “thought provocateurs” for the first in a series of faculty discussions titled “Life of the Mind” sponsored by UC Libraries.

The inaugural “Life of the Mind” lecture series is scheduled for April 19 at 3:30-5pm in the Russell C. Myers Alumni Center.  Free and open to the UC community and public, “Life of the Mind” features interdisciplinary conversations with UC faculty around a one-word theme. Dean Montemagno is one of our featured faculty presenters for this first session on “technology.”

Each quarter, there are two “Life of the Mind” sessions with three "thought provocateurs" contributing to each session. Each scholar provides a 15-minute talk followed by audience Q&A.

The first “Life of the Mind” theme is “Technology.” Six distinguished faculty members will address the theme from unique and diverse perspectives:
