Hey Man, It’s the Heyman Center for the Humanities

Written by

The Heyman Center for the Humanities, a.k.a. the academic building oddly juxtaposed with the hedonistic wasteland of East Campus, hosts a great series of lectures throughout the year on subjects from a broad array of humanities fields. So whether you’re into Reconstruction or reification, you just might find something that suits your fancy. The Center’s schedule of events for the rest of the semester follows below. All events are open to the public and no registration is necessary.
