What does humanities scholarship look like?

Humanities Day, an annual tradition at the University of Chicago since 1980, celebrated the humanities this year on October 16 both in person and virtually through free discussions,  performances, and lectures featuring the latest research of our award-winning faculty in the Division of the Humanities. To see recordings from this year's Humanities Day lectures, visit our YouTube channel in early November.
