UIC Institute for the Humanities


30th Anniversary Programs
A Series on "Crisis: Through the Lens of the Humanities"


We have heard considerable discussion lately about “the crisis in the Humanities.” But the UIC Institute for the Humanities will focus its 30th anniversary programming instead on how crisis appear through the lens of the humanities and ways that humanities help us understand the origins, nature, and scope of crisis. Our programming will explore the ideas, languages, and values that have defined and shaped institutional as well as individual responses to crises across time and place.
