Humanities Institute Ten-Year Anniversary Toast: Thursday, May 6th at 5:00pm on Zoom

The Humanities Institute is celebrating its Ten-Year Anniversary, and we invite you to join us to salute a decade’s worth of work—your work! Over the last ten years, we have supported over 400 faculty working on more than 400 unique projects. Guest speakers, conferences and symposia, research workshops, faculty-student collaborations, community engaged work, and a number of high-profile speakers, from Stanley Fish and Ed Ayers during our founding year, to Fred Moten, Masha Gessen, and Sarah Koenig more recently. The heart of our programming has been our faculty seminars. Hundreds of Wake Forest faculty have participated in seminars on The American Medieval, Aesthetics and Politics, Eighteenth Century Material Culture, The Silk Roads, Film Studies, and Disability Studies, just to mention a few of the many and varied seminar topics. To celebrate all of our scholarly development and professional growth, we will meet online at 5:00pm on Thursday, May 6th to toast and congratulate one another. So much of the HI’s programming is for collaborations among faculty, so we encourage you to bring a friend—that is, attend with someone with whom you’ve collaborated, tell us about the collaboration, and let us salute you!
