The University of Tennessee Humanities Center
Exploring the past, the present, and the possible.
Welcome to the Humanities Center at the University of Tennessee. We support arts and humanities research and advocate for the essential role of the arts and humanities in our world today. Representing 9 departments in the UT College of Arts and Sciences, the Humanities Center promotes interdisciplinary public conversation and research concerned with the academic, social, and cultural issues central to human flourishing.
Groundbreaking research and public dialogue about the most pressing issues of our time.
The Humanities Center at the University of Tennessee supports the research and interdisciplinary dialogue necessary to address essential questions through research seminar funding, grants, and book subventions.
Cutting-edge intellectuals brought to the public with lectures, discussion, symposia & conferences.
The center shares the study of the humanities with the public and, in so doing, brings new perspectives and valuable insights to important topics that affect every person. The “Public Humanities” are made available through programming like the Distinguished Lecture Series, Conversations & Cocktails, and conferences and symposia.
