Spring 2021 Colloquium Series

  • Please save the date for the first event in the new Humanities Center book series, planned for Friday, April 16 at 3:30 pm

Although the usual colloquium series is on hold, we will host one event in our new book series featuring faculty publications supported by our funding. Our April panel will be a discussion with the authors Nate Holdren (Injury Impoverished: Workplace Accidents, Capitalism, and Law in the Progressive Era, 2020), Amahia Mallea (A River in the City of Fountains: An Environmental History of Kansas City and the Missouri River, 2018), and Eric Saylor (English Pastoral Music: From Arcadia to Utopia, 1900-1955, 2017). 

The event will take place on Zoom and be recorded and available on the Center's website. We are excited to celebrate faculty achievements and encourage everyone to join in the audience for the live event. This page will be updated with the Zoom link.
