The Center for the Humanities is proud to support a variety of events for the University of Miami and South Florida community.  In addition to our own signature events such as the Stanford lecture series and Book Talks, you will find information on campus and Miami-area events that the Center is pleased to promote.  

***Please note that the Center for the Humanities is in the process of updating its Event Calendar for the Academic Year 2022-2023. We appreciate your patience, and we anticipate to make most updates by the end of September 2022.

Do you have an event you'd like to advertise here?

For our partners in the humanities, we are happy to help promote events designed to celebrate and support work in the humanities disciplines.  If your organization is hosting an event with a strong connection to the humanities (including but not limited to fields such as History, English, Philosophy, Classics, Religious Studies, Modern Languages, Art History, Theater Arts, Music, and Anthropology), we are happy to review submissions for our Calendar webpage.  

To submit an event, complete this form at least two week's prior to the event.  To be considered: 

  • Events must be open to all UM students, faculty and staff
  • Events must take place in the South Florida area
  • We especially encourage submissions for events that are free and open to the public


Once you've completed the form, a representative from the Center for the Humanities will be in touch to confirm whether we are able to include your event on the Calendar webpage and to discuss further details as needed, such as the inclusion of a graphic or photo.  Please contact us at humanities@miami.edu with questions.
