For release: March 6, 2006

Are you in the mood for a lively conversation about post-Katrina New Orleans, global warming, or privacy in the electronic age? Would you like to learn more about artificial intelligence, the museum of the future, or life on a Mississippi steamboat? How about earthquakes, human cloning, or children's fantasy in American literature?

On March 30, you can chat with experts on these and other subjects when the University of Memphis presents "Great Conversations," an evening of dinner and entertaining discussion with some of the top professors from the College of Arts and Sciences.

The event will be held at the U of M Holiday Inn. A reception will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by the dinner and conversation.

For a $75 fee, participants can choose from among 30 topics. Reservations must be made by March 22 by contacting Nell Blair at 901-678-3523 or jblair@memphis.edu, or Lendon Ellis at 901-678-1332 or lellis2@memphis.edu

The purpose of "Great Conversations" is threefold: to educate the Memphis community about the far-reaching research taking place at the University; to foster an appreciation of the U of M's mission as a metropolitan research institution dedicated to improving the quality of life in Memphis and the Mid-South; and to highlight the University's participation in Memphis' growing role as a global city by spotlighting the College's outreach programs. Proceeds will help support faculty development and community outreach initiatives.
