The Humanities Center invites scholars from around the world to take part in short-term visits to the Humanities Center. These fellows are in Pittsburgh for up to a week and typically present at least one public lecture, one round-table colloquium discussion, and one student-focused event. Pitt faculty, students, and staff are invited to nominate potential visiting short-term fellows for the 2020/21 academic year.
