The Council of the Humanities continues the celebration of its 50th anniversary this year by hosting 28 distinguished guests.

The council, founded in 1953 to foster teaching, research and intellectual exchange, will be home to 17 visiting fellows, seven professors of writing and journalism, two Hodder Fellows and two Belknap Visitors in the Humanities. The visitors include renowned scholars, composers, dancers, playwrights, journalists and artists from around the world.

Nineteen of the visitors are spending a semester or more at Princeton, while the others come for intensive shorter periods of lectures, seminars and colloquia. The public is invited to talks by these visitors, which are announced in the Humanities Council's calendar and in the Princeton Weekly Bulletin.

The full roster of visiting fellows is available in the Weekly Bulletin.
