The Franke Lectures in the Humanities take place in conjunction with an upper-level seminar in the Humanities Program. The Franke Lectures take important conversations in the humanities beyond the classroom with a series of public lectures. Thanks to the generosity of Richard and Barbara Franke, the Franke Lectures in the Humanities bring distinguished scholars to Yale University, where they present vital work in the humanities to a wide and general audience.
Franke Lectures in the Humanities
The fall 2023 Franke Lectures in the Humanities follow the theme of the Yale College seminar “Imagining Global Lyric,” taught by Ayesha Ramachandran. This lecture series will approach lyric poetry in cross-cultural and transmedial ways, to consider lyric across languages, cultures, and media. Distinguished speakers: Srikanth “Chicu” Reddy (September 19), Marilyn Hacker (October 24), Robin Coste Lewis (November 1), and Linda Gregerson (December 5). All lectures will be at 4:30 in HQ 136; free and open to the public.
