The Festival of Ideas began in 2005 with a generous donation by UT Arlington alumnus Mustaque Ahmed ('81). http://www.uta.edu/libarts/festivalofideas.html In 2007, that support grew into an endowment to further strength the program's ability to offer six events each year to the university academic community and the community at large. These events have included lectures by scholars in History, Linguistics, Middle Eastern Studies, Modern Languages, Philosophy, Political Science, and Physics; presentations by artists and writers about their creative work; and concerts and theatrical performances.
Free and open to all.
