About the Institute
The Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, building on a rich legacy of Northwestern accomplishments in each of the various disciplines, 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 faculty working in the humanities, new undergraduate classes based on the research of Institute Fellows, visits by world-renowned humanists to campus for lectures and seminars, and co-sponsorship of concerts, lectures, film presentations, and other such events throughout the University.
