The Humanities Center at CMU

The Humanities Center at Carnegie Mellon University, directed by English Department faculty member David Shumway, supports and encourages study, research, and interest in the humanities, the disciplines that study human culture and its products. The center sponsors lectures, colloquia, panel discussions, and other events designed to promote understanding and knowledge of the humanities in the Carnegie Mellon community. Interdisciplinary conferences and research seminars allow for the production and dissemination of original research and new approaches to the humanities. The center is particularly interested in sponsoring work that spans the divide between the humanities and the sciences. In the future, the Center expects to offer internal and external fellowships.
