Undergraduate Humanities Circle
With support from the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and in consultation with the Senior Associate Dean for Humanities and Arts, the Humanities Center has launched the Stanford Undergraduate Humanities Circle, a cross-disciplinary workshop for Stanford undergraduates.
The Humanities Circle enables undergraduates to engage with literature, arts, languages, philosophy, history, and other fields outside of the classroom, following their own interests. It's an intellectual community among undergraduates based upon common interests and not major departments, class year, or other distinctions.
The group will meet two or three times per quarter, with the content and direction of meetings largely determined by the interests of the participants. The structure will be loosely based on the Center’s graduate workshops, in which students, faculty, and guests gather for dinner and cross-disciplinary conversation based around a central theme for the year.
The goal of the Humanities Circle is to challenge undergraduates to think broadly about the humanities and to offer them the opportunity to make intellectual and social contacts with peers in other fields.
