Humanities NOW

Join the Conversation

A series of conversations that help students and others broaden their knowledge of our complex world.

Hosted by Natasha Bowdoin, School of Humanities Associate Dean and Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing in the Department of Art, Humanities NOW conversations are
open to all Rice students and the entire Rice community. They provide a sense of the wide variety of work scholars and creators in the humanities are engaged in and how this work connects to critical questions of our time.
