Please join us for the 2018 Edward T. Breathitt Undergraduate Lecture in the Humanities! This year's lecture will feature junior Gaines fellow Beau Revlett on "Rationality and morality: What rational choice theory and ethics can tell us about each other."


Established to honor Edward T. Breathitt, an eminent Kentuckian (Governor of KY, 1963-67) and an outstanding alumnus of the Univesity of Kentucky whose interest in higher education and the humanities was exceptional, this lectureship is awarded to an undergraduate whose qualities of mind and spirit have been expressed eloquently on one of more of the basic concerns of the humanities: form, value, and memory. The award is presented by the Gaines Center for the Humanities. The Edward T. Breathitt Lectureship recipient receives a special award and an honorarium of $500.
