The Penn Humanities Forum is a center within the University of Pennsylvania whose function is to relate humanistic knowledge to other areas of thought and practice both within the university and beyond it. Through public lectures and research seminars, courses, and cultural programs, the Forum provides a common ground for interdisciplinary exchange and public interaction.
The Forum's annual calendar of events is designed to promote the "thinking arts" and forge a confederacy between the Philadelphia region and its universities. To guide its programs and activities, the Forum sets a different humanistic topic each year. In 1999-2000, our topic was HUMAN NATURE; for 2000-2001, STYLE; and for 2001-02, TIME.
