Illinois Program for the Research in the Humanities Fall 2013 events

The Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities has released its Fall 2013 calendar of events (see below). Each semester the IPRH organizes lectures, symposia, and other events that are free and open to the public, and designed to stimulate conversations and scholarship on a wide variety of humanistic topics.

The IPRH provides support for individual scholars at the University of Illinois through their Faculty and Graduate Student Fellowships. Additional support is provided for faculty-driven, interdisciplinary public programs via the Event Grants Program, which awards funds that enable faculty teams to organize public events that will be of interest to the broader scholarly community at Illinois and beyond. All are encouraged to participate with the IPRH through their public events, funding opportunities, and other avenues of engagement, including their mailing list which disseminates announcements throughout the year.
