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.
On Wednesday, March 2, A. Joan Saab, associate professor of art history and visual and cultural studies, will present the inaugural Hagop and Artemis Nazerian Humanities Lecture. Her presentation is titled “Making Sense of What We See: Hoaxes and the American Visual Imagination."

On September 24, the Humanities Center welcomed Gerald Early as its inaugural speaker for its new lecture series. Before Early’s talk, the Hawkins-Carlson Room was standing-room-only, prompting organizers to expand the room to double the event’s capacity. His talk—delivered with bravura and charisma—touched on history, literature, politics, economics, race relations, architecture, culture, and more.
With majors and degree programs that incorporate dozens of disciplines.
Comprised of hundreds of courses based in Arts, Sciences and Engineering.
