The Institute announces Cutting Edge Issues in the Humanities, small workshops focused on current conversations and debates in the humanities. Discussions will explore cutting edge issues, theoretical problems, new research initiatives, or new methodologies.
The 2016-2017 academic year begins with the Cutting Edge in the Humanities conference "The Relational Nature of Thought." This two day event takes place at the UIC Institute for the Humanities on September 16-17 and is organized by UIC Department of Philosophy members Aidan Gray and Mahrad Almotahari.
The UIC Institute for the Humanities sponsors a wide array of public interdisciplinary programs through which research in the humanities can become relevant and accessible to the urban public.
The Stanley Fish Lecture, which occurs every other year, is designed to acknowledge the achievements of Stanley Fish as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UIC (1999-2004).
