Humanities Center

Visit Group Website

Today, the humanities are at a crossroads. Humanists are concerned about a crisis in their disciplines as students increasingly turn to science and engineering. At the same time, new technologies and new, more collaborative modes of scholarship promise to deepen our knowledge of human experience. The Humanities Center is a response to the changing conditions for humanistic inquiry. It represents a call to action, an invitation to explore the possibilities of innovative research in an interdisciplinary setting.
