Upcoming Events

Date: Tuesday, October 1, 2019 - 4:00pm
Location: Bingham Davis House

Every other year, the Center holds an open competition among University of Kentucky faculty who wish to offer a special humanities-oriented seminar that includes a travel experience. Ten students are then selected by way of competitive application for participation in this 300-level seminar. The Bingham Seminar in the Humanities provides faculty and students a chance to explore a subject not in the university's regular course offerings and to do so on-site, since the seminar provides funding to offset the cost of two to four weeks' study either in the US or abroad.

Date: Wednesday, October 2, 2019 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Location: Singletary Center for the Arts
