The Humanities Center sponsors a wide array of programs, all of which contribute to the intellectual life of the Center, the heart of which is the weekly colloquium series. Read about them below, or select from the links on the right-hand side of this page
Pitt Faculty Fellowship
The Humanities Center hosts University of Pittsburgh faculty to take part in Center activities as an Internal Faculty Fellow. These fellows lead a colloquium in the Humanities Center and we enlist two faculty members, preferably coming from different fields of study, to deliver responses during the session--these respondents may come from Pitt or from other local institutions.
Visiting Short-Term Fellows
The Humanities Center invites scholars from around the world to take part in short-term visits to the Humanities Center. These visiting short-term fellows typically present one public lecture, one round-table colloquium discussion, and one student-focused event. Additionally, each spring term, the week after commencement, we bring one scholar to campus to host our week long Faculty Seminar.
