Social Sciences 2010 Lecture Series

UCI social scientists investigate issues that matter to society, from the wiring of the brain to the cultural implications of the wiring of the planet. Conducting both pure and applied research, they help us know what to do when things go wrong, or how to help out when things are going right. Their interdisciplinary research findings help spark innovative solutions to problems that impact the world around us. Whether it’s the economy, transportation, family, social processes, the mind, international affairs, politics or culture, the work of UCI’s social scientists makes a difference.

With the launch of the school’s new expert speaker series, "Changing Perceptions, Making Connections," we invite you to come learn how UCI social sciences research is making a difference in areas of mind, brain and behavior; population and immigration; and local California politics.
