Welcome to the 34th annual Humanities Day at the University of Chicago. On Saturday, October 20, students, alumni, and members of our greater Chicago community come together for a day of lectures, readings, discussions, and exhibitions.
Join the conversation as scholars from the Division of the Humanities present their latest research in literature, philosophy, linguistics, music, visual arts, and more. Make new connections at programs on topics ranging from gastromusicology to the financial market in Ancient Greece to the value of War and Peace. And reconsider the Bard at the keynote address, “Shakespeare’s Prejudices: Shrews and Jews” by Richard Strier, Frank L. Sulzberger Distinguished Service Professor in English.
