Cutting-edge intellectuals brought to the public with lectures, discussion, symposia, and conferences.
The UT Humanities 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 at UT are made available through programming like our Distinguished Lecture Series, Conversations & Cocktails, special events, and conferences and symposia. Our internal programming provides research support and professional development opportunities for UT faculty and graduate students in the arts & humanities, as well as across other campus departments and centers.
