Prior Initiatives


TAFTtalks are designed to draw out issues of interest beyond the academe and focus on big, contemporary ideas and concerns. They feature the best and brightest minds within our own ranks at UC and of our visiting lecturers and scholars. These include Tara Houska, Bill McKibben, Henry Giroux, and Paula Banerjee, among others. This project was undertaken 2014 - 2017. To view TAFTtalks, click the button below.
