As part of our new Mellon initiative Seminars in Historical, Global, and Emerging Humanities, the FHI is partnering with Duke’s 18 arts, humanities, and interpretive social sciences departments to organize a 3-year series of cross-departmental public seminars. Each Humanities Futures event brings together a sub-group of Duke humanities departments, in a joint exploration of the futures of the disciplines in light of the interdisciplinary developments of recent decades. This event is jointly organized by the FHI, the Department of Cultural Anthropology, the Dance Program, and the Program in Literature.
