The UT Humanities Center helps promote humanities scholarship but also advocates for the humanities in public life. We support faculty, student, and regional programming by UT faculty that is designed to educate the public about what the arts and humanities can offer. Departments, programs, and programming organizers at the University of Tennessee are welcome to request co-sponsorship from the UT Humanities Center. The Center receives requests on a rolling basis. It has limited funds, so it is helpful for organizers to make their requests as early as possible in the planning process. Requests should be directed to the Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include in the request:
- Name of event and brief note on its programmatic or research purpose and expected audience
- List of other co-sponsors requested and/or confirmed and in what dollar amounts.
We also financially support ongoing programs that bring the humanities out of the classroom and into the vibrant and varied public sphere. Below are some of the ongoing programs we help to sponsor on and off the University of Tennessee campus.
