As scholars in the humanities and humanistic social sciences at the University of Rochester, we examine human culture in its myriad forms: literature, language, media, philosophy, religion, history, anthropology, visual and performing arts, and much more. The Humanities Center is our interdisciplinary home base. It is both a planned physical space, eventually to be located in Rush Rhees Library, and a community of researchers committed to scholarly exchange and collaboration. We offer programs for faculty, students, and the public.
The Humanities Center Executive Committee is pleased to announce the Center's fellows for 2016-2017. Our internal fellow in fall, 2016, will be Peter Christensen (Art and Art History.) The three internal fellows for spring, 2017 are Margarita Guillory (Religion and Classics, Dahpon Ho (History), and Llerena Searle (Anthropology.) Our external fellows, who will join the Center for the academic year, are Brian Jacobson (Cinema Studies Institute, University of Toronto) and Elana Shever (Anthropology, Colgate University).
