The Edith Bleich Lecture Series was established by Dr. Stuart Blumin in memory of Edith Bleich.  Ms. Bleich was one the University of Miami’s earliest and most devoted students.  Each year, the Center invites a humanities scholar to speak to the UM and South Florida community about their research.  This event is free an open to the public.
