Call for Proposals for 2024-2025 Humanities forum

Since 1987, the Humanities Forum has offered a free program of events that illustrate the richness of contemporary work in philosophy, history, culture, language, literature, and the arts.

The Forum fosters creative thinking about the role of the humanities in civic life within our globally interconnected world.


The Dresher Center for the Humanities welcomes your suggestions for the upcoming season. Proposals will be vetted by the Humanities Forum Planning Committee in conversation with the Dresher Center staff.  Consideration will be given to balance across fields and topics as well as orientation towards a public audience.


All suggestions are welcome so long as they center humanities issues, topics, methodologies, or questions. Potential areas of interest for 2024-25:


      Celebration of the James Baldwin 100th anniversary

      Culinary/food studies

      Indigenous perspectives

      Questions of incarceration

Please submit proposals through this form.
Proposals are due April 5, 2024.


Please direct any questions to Courtney C. Hobson, Program Manager, at chobson1@umbc.edu
