HI's 15th Anniversary

This year the Humanities Institute turns 15! 

In 2003, a small and dedicated group of USF faculty, administrators, and donors came together to launch the USF Humanities Institute. Lead by Dr. William H. Scheuerle, their goal was to bring established scholars and artists to USF as well as promote research in the humanities by USF faculty. They recognized that investment in humanities research was a critical component in USF's goal of becoming a nationally renowned research univeristy

Haunted Houses

PoetTraci Brimhall will give a reading from her most recent book, *Saudade.* Saudade (a feeling of longing, melancholy, or nostalgia) is set in the Brazilian Amazon and is described as being one part ghost story and one part revival. Brimhall calls it "autobiomythography."

Brimhall, a 2013 National Endowment for the Arts Fellow, teaches creative writing at Kansas State University. 

The reading will be held on Thursday, April 18, at 6:00 p.m.in the TECO Room of the College of Education Building.
