The Director of the Center, Professor Michael Patrick Gillespie, of the English Department, has been awarded the Charles Fanning Medal recognizing his outstanding scholarship and service in Irish Studies. The award, the highest recognition that can be given to an individual in the field, will be conferred on October 14, 2010, at Southern Illinois University. On that day, Professor Gillespie will deliver a lecture at the ceremony entitled James Joyce and the Problem of Exile.
During the 2011 academic year, the Center for the Humanities in an Urban Environment will be offering a series of workshops in the South Florida community to address topics in the humanities that relate to the lives and interests of people in our community.
The Center is initiating an internal fund raising effort seeking donations from university units as part of our Founding Departments Program. We are pleased to announce an inaugural donation of $2,000 from the Department of English. We are grateful for this material endorsement of our efforts and look forward to being able to announcing additional support in the near future.
