Source of these courses is Oxford 
Humanities Lectures from Oxford University. Humanitas is a series of Visiting Professorships at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge intended to bring leading practitioners and scholars to both universities to address major themes in the arts, social sciences and humanities. Created by Lord Weidenfeld, the Programme is managed and funded by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue with the support of a series of generous benefactors and administered by The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities in Oxford. The programme is also run at the University of Cambridge in conjunction with the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH). Now in its third year the Humanitas Visiting Professorships Programme has become an established part of the intellectual scenes at Oxford and Cambridge, has held fourteen successful series, attended by approximately six thousand people and been iewed online all over the world. The Humanitas series has touched upon topics as enduring as Holocaust Studies and as cutting-edge as Social Movements in the Internet Age. The events have drawn together interested audiences of various backgrounds to hear distinguished speakers share experiences and aspirations, as well as explore new arguments in masterfully-chaired seminars and symposia. In 2012-13 twenty Visiting Chairs will be welcomed to the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. The Programme will build upon the success of its first and second years and will continue to attract distinguished academics and leading practitioners who possess cross-disciplinary interests in the arts, social sciences, and humanities.
