The Humanities Lecture Series, begun in 1947, is the oldest continuing series at the University of Kansas and one of the most distinguished lecture series in the Midwest. The goal of the series is to bring scholars and artists to campus whose work encompasses or redefines central problems in the humanities, and who can frame their intellectual concerns so as to reach a multi-disciplinary audience including students, faculty and interested community members.

The Series is presented by The Hall Center for the Humanities. For more information about the Hall Center or the Lecture Series, contact us at (785) 864-4798 or hallcenter@ku.edu or visit our web site at www.hallcenter.ku.edu.
