Humanities Speaker Series

The Humanities Speaker Series is an annual event that brings to campus speakers who engage with issues that cross disciplines within, and beyond, the Humanities. Funded by the Office of Research, Commercialization and Outreach, the series also provides the opportunity for a small group of scholars at TAMU-CC to work together on an enduring question or theme within the Humanities.

In conjunction with the Speaker Series, the departments of English and Humanities have established the Humanities Fellowship, an interdisciplinary group of teachers and scholars who will collaboratively plan the lecture and present their own research to the campus community. This year's fellows are Dr. Chuck Etheridge (English), Dr. Clauda Rueda (History), and Dr. Stefan Sencerz (Philosophy).
