Being Human

Welcome to the page for Being Human, the Humanities Center's monthly podcast. Begun during Pitt's Year of the Humanities, Being Human aims to create conversations between the humanities and other disciplines -- conversations that let humanists and scholars in other fields learn from each other and create new forms of understanding as the 21st century unfolds.The video below should tell you what we're all about.

See below for our most recent podcast, highlights from a panel titled "Environmental Institutions: Representing Nature in the Anthropocene." The panel featured Reid Frazier (Energy Reporter, The Allegheny Front and StateImpact Pennsylvania), Nicole Heller (Curator of the Anthropocene, Carnegie Museum of Natural History), and Heather Houser (Associate Professor of English, University ofTexas-Austin).
