Colloquium Series

Humanities Center colloquia provide an opportunity for engaging in conversation around a pre-distributed writing or group of writings from Center fellows and guests. They typically feature remarks by the author of the works to be discussed, responses by several faculty experts on the topic, and then an open discussion among the participants and the audience.

Colloquiua are held on most Thursdays at 12:30 p.m. in the Humanities Center. See our calendar for upcoming colloquia.

Faculty and graduate students in Pitt Humanities departments can access colloquium papers two weeks before the event by logging in to, clicking on the tab "My Resources," selecting "Humanities Center," and then following the link under "Colloquium Readings."
