Celebration of Books

Faculty Shut Up & Write

"Shut Up & Write" began as a movement for writers in San Francisco to structure their time and connect with other writers. The idea was simple: write for an hour, then grab a coffee afterward to converse and build community. Academics embraced the practice and the idea spread.

Research on the Leading Edge

This workshop will bring visiting scholars to campus who have published, or who are working upon, research that is boundary shifting within the humanities and humanistic social sciences.

Resident Fellows

The Center awards residential fellowships to five KU faculty members each year, in addition to the Simons Public Humanities Fellow and the Richard and Jeannette Sias Graduate Fellows.


The Hall Center currently sponsors nine ongoing seminars which bring together faculty and graduate students from different departments for interdisciplinary dialogue and discussion and to present research. Many of the seminars also invite visiting speakers from other US universities and from overseas.


The Center sponsors workshops for faculty and graduate students, according to demand and funding. The main workshops assist the development of research grant proposals and faculty publications.
