Biographical/Historical Information

The Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities fosters interdisciplinary conversations among Northwestern faculty, visiting faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, and the public. It sponsors lectures and workshops that address topics of importance to the humanities, and challenge the assumptions that govern the humanities. It also supports occasions for faculty and graduate students to exchange ideas and share scholarly or artistic work-in-progress in an informal setting.

The Center for the Humanities was founded in Spring 1992 to foster the development of a broad, innovative humanities culture at NU. It started out in a modest office in Harris Hall and then moved into a renovated house at 2010 Sheridan Rd. in 1995, when it was named after deceased NU alumna and life-long student in the humanities, Alice Berline Kaplan. The Center became the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities in Fall 2006.

In February 2009 the Institute relocated and is now firmly ensconced in our newly renovated space on the second floor of Kresge Centennial Hall. We have initiated an Artist-in-Residence program, recruited new faculty, and developed programs that broaden and deepen interdisciplinary conversation among faculty and student humanists across the university.
