Trinity University will host “Humanities Unbound,” from April 11-14, 2024. This interdisciplinary conference highlights research in the humanities freed from boundaries that separate disciplines or restrict scholarship to the ivory tower.

Saturday, April 13, features an interdisciplinary roundtable discussion from 9:30-11:00: "Humanities Time: death, dying and mortality" addresses death across literature, philosophy and other fields. How might the humanities uniquely help humans understand the nature of death? What do cultural forms from literary elegies to Dia de Los Muertos festivals offer scholars who analyze them in light of mortality?  Featuring Dr. Jinli He, Dr. Heather Sullivan, Dr. Ana María Mutis, Dr. Steven Luper and Dr. Betsy Tontiplaphol.

This discussion will be followed by concurrent student panels from 11:30-12:30. These concurrent sessions will highlight student summer research, term papers, senior capstone colloquia, honors thesis research, and other student humanities work.

This event is free and open to faculty, staff, students and members of the public.
