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.

Sunday, April 14, features a plenary panel discussion from 9:30-11:00: "Humanities Space: the architecture and material culture of humanist inquiry" explores the spaces and material culture surrounding humanities work, from library architecture and bookbinding to objects related to ritual or artistic expression. Where do humanities disciplines, from history and literature to performance studies, happen? How does the built environment shape the thoughts that occur within? Featuring Dr. Kathryn O’Rourke, Dr. Angela Tarango and Dr. Nicole Marafioti.

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.

Registration recommended but not required. Register now
