Besides the IAH, the Division of Arts and Humanities comprises six departments and two centers with numerous interdisciplinary programs. Each program hosts lectures, meetings and events unique to it. For more information, please contact program staff.

Note: Following Dr. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor's decision to cancel her June 1 lecture at UCSD due to hate mail and threats she received after a recent commencement address at Hampshire College, IAH strongly condemns any attempt to silence scholars, particularly those underrepresented in the academy, through the use of intimidation and threats and violence. Sign a letter in support of Dr. Taylor with the faculty of Princeton University or Hampshire College. Read commentary on this issue.
