Please join us for a networking reception followed by an evening of public presentations in our inaugural #HumaniNights: Celebrating the Engaged Humanities with Arts Amplifier and the Public Humanities Hub. #HumaniNights is a Nerd Nite style event for the UBC community to present on a special humanities topic that has recently inspired them–be it an inspirational book, research idea, public project, or creative work. UBC humanities faculty, students, staff, and postdocs all welcome.
