About Us

NYC Humanities Calendar is an events aggregator focusing on the humanities in New York City.


The mission of NYC Humanities Calendar is to help New Yorkers become thoughtful participants in our communities by promoting critical inquiry, cultural understanding, and civic engagement.

The NYC Humanities Calendar provides a centralized digital hub for listing upcoming NYC-area humanities talks and events. The calendar streamlines event information from universities, institutes, museums, and libraries across the city. For participating individuals and organizations, the calendar offers a free public space for event listings. It is a free resource that allows users to peruse upcoming programming across the city, and thus more easily chart out their intellectual itineraries for the weeks and months ahead. The calendar seeks to stimulate community-building by facilitating more frequent ties among writers, artists, academics, curators, non-profit professionals, and the wider public. The NYC Humanities Calendar thus provides administrative support with the simple goal of sparking dynamic, productive conversations.

Listing Events

The opportunity to list events on the calendar is open to any humanities organization in the NYC area. Events suggested for the calendar should be submitted as far in advance as possible to the site’s administrators. All events will be considered for calendar publication in the order of their submission. Organizers are asked to supply their event’s essential details: sponsoring institution; contact and registration information (if applicable); date, time, and venue; an event description; and whenever possible, a relevant image. When available, listings will include a link to the host organization’s event information webpage. Since event listings may change, users are encouraged to check the organization’s webpage for up-to-date details.


The NYC Humanities Calendar is a project of the Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities, Columbia University. Please contact us at: [email protected]
