Campus Humanities Calendar

Intended for students from across the campus, Inside Scoop conversations invite Illinois undergraduates to engage with the exciting work conducted by scholars whose work helps us understand what it means to be human in a world of rapidly shifting global complexities. These sessions offer an opportunity for all interested undergrads, no matter their majors, to engage with creative minds in the humanities.

Open to all undergraduates. Registration required. Lunch will be served.

Part of A Year of Creative Writers at Illinois 2020. Supported by the Presidential Initiative to Celebrate the Impact of the Arts and the Humanities.

Smith is the founding director of the Institute on the Arts and Civic Dialogue at New York University where she is also university professor at Tisch School of the Arts. This facilitated conversation will provide a special opportunity to hear perspectives from “the American theater’s most dynamic and sophisticated oral historian” in the context of the complexities and challenges of our own time (The New York Times).
