Beginning in Fall 2016, CCHS will be organized around an annual theme that provides the foundation for the academic year's scheduled events and for a Humanities Research Lab, involving a bimonthly colloquium. CCHS themes are planned to stimulate wide interest and to cut across different disciplinary questions and diverse approaches. In keeping with the core mission of CCHS, they seek to foreground forms of humanistic inquiry in research and advanced learning not only in humanities departments but also across the whole range of departments of the college. regularly and run as a colloquium, focusing on written materials disseminated by the Faculty Fellows and special guests. Humanities Research Lab will typically feature remarks by one of the Fellows, responses by experts from UofL and distinguished visitors, and an open discussion among the participants and the audience. As space permits, graduate students and other faculty are invited to participate. Readings for the Humanities Research Lab series will be provided by sending an email request to the CCHS Project Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
