Opportunity to Explore an Important Topic in the Humanities

The purpose of the Obermann Humanities Symposium is to explore an important humanities topic that highlights UI scholars and scholarship. The proposed symposium may be interdisciplinary or involve the efforts of scholars from a single department, involve few or many participants, and use any format that produces a lively exchange of ideas. The symposium should include both UI and visiting participants. Some sessions must be open to all UI faculty members, staff, and students.

Recent Obermann Humanities Symposia have been Latinos in the Midwest and Comics, Creativity and Culture. (See links below to learn more about those events.)
