Each quarter, there are two “Life of the Mind” sessions with three "thought provocateurs" contributing to each session. The spring “Life of the Mind” theme is “Death.”
At the February 5 event, three distinguished faculty members will address the theme from unique and diverse perspectives:

- Charles Puchta, Director of the Center for Aging with Dignity, College of Nursing
The second session in the series on “Death” will be held Tuesday, March 5 from 3:30-5pm.
“Life of the Mind” is free and open to the public and attracts a broad audience including UC students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as people from the community. Past themes have been “Technology,” “War,” “Identity,” and "Security." More information about “Life of the Mind” is available online at www.libraries.uc.edu/lifeofthemind/.
