The story behind Syracuse Symposium
Each year, the Humanities Center presents Syracuse Symposium, a public humanities events series focused around an annual theme. Syracuse Symposium engages wider publics with innovative, interdisciplinary work in the humanities by renowned scholars, artists, authors, and performers.

A call for Symposium proposals is typically issued in the fall to support events occurring in the next academic year. See our Forms page for additional details.  Annual themes and programming selection are reviewed and recommended by members of the Center’s Faculty Advisory Board.
