Franke Lectures in the Humanities

The annual Franke Lectures in the Humanities provide up to four public lectures a year, organized in conjunction with an upper-level undergraduate humanities seminar. The lectures are made possible by the generosity of Richard and Barbara Franke, and are intended to present important topics in the Humanities to a wide and general audience.

The fall 2018 Franke Lectures have been organized in conjunction with the Yale College seminar “Heidegger’s Being and Time” taught by Martin Hägglund.
