The Executive Committee of the Center for Public Humanities plans an annual, week-long symposium with hopes that it will provide the campus and community with a public intellectual conversation that contributes to our common life together and to our understanding of the wider world.

The theme for the 2020 Spring Humanities Symposium is “Vulnerability and Security” (February 17-21).
