"Humanities NOW" is a series of conversations open to all current and prospective Rice students, and all other members of the Rice community. These online discussions reveal the ways in which humanities inquiry can help make sense of the world we live in and the daily dilemmas we all face.


Hosted by Fay Yarbrough '97, associate professor of history and associate dean for undergraduate programs and special projects in the School of Humanities, Humanities NOW bring students together with Humanities scholars for critical discussion on the substance of real justice; on ethics and morality in the face of disaster; on who is at the center of the study of medicine; and more.
