About the Tanner Humanities Center
Since 1988, the Tanner Humanities Center at the University of Utah has promoted humanities
inquiry and exchange by supporting innovative scholarly projects and creating opportunities
for interaction among scholars, students, and lifelong learners. They offer programs
in three major areas, public outreach, educational enrichment, and academic research.
The activities reflect a vision of the humanities as not only relevant, stimulating,
and cutting-edge, but also essential for developing critical thinking, tolerance,
and respect on campus and in the community.
