Humanities on the Edge is a speaker series co-founded by Dr. Marco Abel and Dr. Roland Végsö, who now co-ordinate the series together with Dr. Jeannette Jones (Department of History and Institute for Ethnic Studies), and Carrie L. Morgan (Curator of Academic Programs at the Sheldon). Founded in 2010, the series is now in its seventh year, and its mission remains the same: to promote cross-disciplinary conversation and theoretical research in the Humanities.

Timothy Scott Brown is the author of West Germany in the Global Sixties: The Anti-Authoritarian Revolt, 1962-1978 (Cambridge, 2013). He is co-editor (with Andrew Lison) of The Global Sixties in Sound and Vision: Media, Counterculture, Revolt (Palgrave, 2014), and (with Lorena Anton) of Between the Avantgarde and the Everyday: Subversive Politics in Europe, 1957 to the Present (Berghahn, 2011). His essays have appeared in the American Historical Review, the Journal of Social History, German Studies Review, and Contemporary European History. His new book project is entitled The Greening of Cold War Germany: Environmentalism and Social Movements across the Wall and Beyond, 1968-1989. Event is free and open to the public.
