Distinguished Lecture Series
Funded through the UT Humanities Center for use by faculty in one of our nine affiliated arts and humanities departments, the Distinguished Lecture Series brings acclaimed humanities scholars and renowned artists to the Knoxville campus and connects UT humanities faculty to the best researchers in their fields. Because only speakers with exceptional records of publication and research activity are eligible to receive a nomination as a visiting scholar, the program brings to campus some of the most cutting-edge and prolific intellectuals in the humanities today.
Lectures are free and open to the public and are held on the UT Knoxville campus. Public parking is available in the Volunteer Hall parking garage for our off-campus visitors. Everyone is welcome!

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, Public Books Circle, Conversations & Cocktails, and conferences and symposia.
