Humanities on the Edge

Humanities on the Edge


Humanities on the Edge is a speaker series co-founded by Dr. Marco Abel and Dr. Roland Végsö, who now co-ordinate the series together with Dr. Jeannette Jones (Department of History and Institute for Ethnic Studies), Ángel Maldonado, (Assistant Professor of Communication Studies) and Carrie L. Morgan (Curator of Academic Programs at the Sheldon). Founded in 2010, the series is now in its seventh year, and its mission remains the same: to promote cross-disciplinary conversation and theoretical research in the Humanities.
