The student fellows are:

The sixteen student fellows are joining the four University of Hartford faculty fellows who will present lectures in the 2019 Humanities Center Lecture Series on the topic of the seminar. These faculty fellows are: Robert Lang (Cinema), Karla Loya (Educational Leadership), Avi Patt (Judaic Studies), and Beth Richards (English and Modern Languages).

The two-semester Humanities Honors Course (HON 389 and HON 390) is offered every year on a topic proposed by that year’s instructor. The Humanities Center sends out a call for course proposals every fall to all full-time faculty members. HON 389 in the fall is a seminar for the students; HON 390 in the spring is a lecture series for the students and the general public.

The Lecture Series on “Evidence in a Post-Truth World” in the spring 2019 semester will be free and open to all students, faculty and staff as well as members of the community. Lectures will begin at 7:30 on Tuesdays in the Mali Lecture Hall (in Dana Hall). A schedule for the series will be available in January 2019.

The Humanities Center at the University of Hartford supports interdisciplinary scholarship focusing on the humanities through the arts, sciences, technology, media, psychology, history, film, philosophy, music and literature. For more information, contact Nicholas Ealy, director, at
