UA Lecture Series Begins This Week

The University of Arizona's College of Social and Behavioral Sciences is hosting its fifth annual Downtown Series of lectures. The talks begin this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Fox Tucson Theatre, 17 W. Congress St.

The "Truth and Trust in the Global Scene" series will focus on maintaining trust during what has become known as an era of alternative facts and fake news.

Future weekly discussions, through Oct. 26, will focus on redefining journalism and what the news doesn't tell you about global conflicts.

The public discussions are free, but tickets are required. The tickets will be available at the Fox Tucson Theatre box office on the day of the event.
