Faculty Invites

Faculty Invites Program

For application in Spring 2022, with events in 2022-2023 and beyond

The Humanities in the World initiative demonstrates Penn State’s commitment to the importance of humanities research and the dissemination of ideas regarding our collective understanding of urgent social issues. As such, each semester the Humanities Institute will host scholars and events around pressing themes, as determined by an Executive Committee. Events that resonate with that theme will be strongly considered.

Please note: The theme for 2022-2023 has yet to be determined.

Specialized research topics with focused appeal are welcome but special consideration will be given to events with broader community appeal.

Please note: Faculty Invites is a funding program designed for University Park events and faculty members. Information on a parallel program for commonwealth campus participation can be found

Deadline: Proposals should be emailed to humanities@psu.edu with subject line Faculty Invites, by 5:00 p.m., February 28, 2022.

Proposals may be for conferences, lectures, or workshops. Please see specific details below.
