tgiFHI logo

tgiFHI is a weekly series that gives Duke faculty in the humanities, interpretive social sciences and arts the opportunity to present their current research to their departmental and interdepartmental colleagues, students, and other interlocutors in their fields.

tgiFHI events take place from 9:30–11:00 a.m. on Friday mornings in the Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall (C105, Bay 4, Smith Warehouse). Our director introduces at the speaker at 9:30 a.m., and the speaker gives a talk of about 45–50 minutes. We then open the floor for discussion, and close at 11:00 a.m.

In 2020, we started a companion interview series to tgiFHI called "Meet Your Humanities Faculty." Soon, you will be able to browse all interviews to date via the page at left.
