UK Gaines Center for the Humanities

Our continued fascination with the American Civil War will be the theme for this year’s Bale Boone Symposium.  The series of public lectures, sponsored by UK’s Gaines Center for the Humanities, represents the university’s longest-running Town/Gown event.  Center Director Phil Harling says the 150th anniversary of the end of formal North/South hostilities is a timely conversation starter.
