The Humanities Center - Carnegie Mellon University

Welcome to the Humanities Center

Founded in 2003, the Humanities Center at Carnegie Mellon promotes and support scholarship and research that actively engages with culture and human production across the disciplines. Both a commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration and engagement with the traditional questions addressed by the humanities are essential at a university historically focused on science, technology, and the arts. Through lectures, panel discussions, conferences, and public outreach in our Faces Film Festivals, we demonstrate the value and interest of the humanities on and off campus.
