The History Center is proud partners with USF’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute to offer courses on Florida history and culture.
Florida Conversations
Florida Conversations is co-sponsored by the USF Libraries Florida Studies Center and supported by WUSF Public Media, and features authors and presenters covering a variety of Florida topics, from politics to fiction, history to environmental issues.
Sangria & Stories
Sangria & Stories is a casual, fun way to hear the hidden stories of the History Center’s permanent collection and temporary exhibits. Special guest speakers discuss a single object, a temporary exhibit or selected pieces from the permanent galleries. Program includes free under-building garage parking, gallery presentation and a glass of sangria. Space is limited to 25; reservations are required. Make an evening of it and have dinner at the Columbia Cafe before or after the program.
Tap Talks
Grab a friend, raise a pint and let’s talk history. Tap Talks take place at local breweries around the bay area. Check the event calendar to see what’s brewing.
