The Center hosts speakers from around the globe and across the spectrum of the humanities. Because of our belief that a broad and deep understanding of the humanities contributes to civic and democratic life, the Center invites all members of the community to read, listen and discuss together.

All lectures are free and open to the public and are held on the UNE Portland Campus with a reception at 5 p.m. and lecture at 6 p.m.

​Shuttle Available
