Humanities on the Edge

Humanities on the Edge is a speaker series co-founded by Dr. Marco Abel and Dr. Roland Végső, who now co-ordinate the series together with Dr. Jeannette Jones (Department of History and Institute for Ethnic Studies), Luis Othoniel Rosa (Modern Languages & Literatures and Institute for Ethnic Studies), and Erin Hanas (Curator of Academic Programs at the Sheldon Museum of Art). Founded in 2010, the series is now in its 11th year, and its mission remains the same: to promote cross-disciplinary conversation and theoretical research in the Humanities.
