Events at the UCD Humanities Institute

UCD Humanities Institute host and sponsor events which enable advances in interdisciplinary and collaborative research on key challenges, which showcase innovation and ambition in the humanities, and which promote public engagement with humanities research. A core mission of the institute is to provide physical and conceptual space for new research in the humanities, and this includes a busy schedule of conferences, seminars, presentations and meetings focused on leading-edge ideas and projects. The institute also encourages humanities scholars to promote their research beyond the university, and our programme of events regularly includes active collaboration with museums, galleries, theatres, schools, libraries, and other public institutions and spaces.

A range of creative and dynamic events take place at the UCD Humanities Institute itself throughout the year. All events take place in the Seminar Room (H.204) which is located on the second floor. The Humanities Institute is building number 30 (grid reference F9) on the UCD campus map which can be found at

UCD Humanities Institute is committed to promoting and disseminating humanities research as widely as possible, and engaging public audiences in duscussions about the discoveries and values of the humanities. Many of the events we host and sponsor are open to anyone to attend, and we also record most events and make them available on this website as podcasts. Please see our Podcasts Page for details. For details on booking the seminar room please see the Facilities section.
