About the Institute
The Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities was established to organize and promote the kind of expansive, interdisciplinary discussion and debate that characterizes leading-edge humanities scholarship today. The Institute cultivates this work through an annual fellowship program for NU faculty, humanities courses for undergraduates, invited lectures, Institute-sponsored research workshops, and a quarterly Artist-in-Residence program.
