Humanities

The Humanities Institute was founded in 1986 to promote interdisciplinary research and public discussion of important issues in culture and society. Each semester the Institute sponsors a series of events on a significant theme in the humanities. The programs of the Institute include conferences, lectures, readings, exhibitions, and film series and bring to Scripps College scholars, scientists, and artists who are of special interest to the community. Students can apply to participate in the work of the Institute. Fellows, who are appointed for one term, take a research seminar (Humanities 195J) in addition to attending all the events of the Institute and creating a final project.
