About the Center for Humanities and Society

The Center for Humanities and Society is dedicated to the idea that the various approaches characteristic of scholarship in the humanities area can illumine issues of broad public interest.  We sponsor programs designed to bring historical, philosophical, literary and other perspectives into conversation on a variety of topics.  Established in 2010, CHS programs to date include a half-day symposium on “The Persistence of Evil” and a series of lectures on “Humanities Perspectives on Islam.”  (for more on these events, see Events or News).

Currently located in Diffenbaugh 421, CHS enjoys a close working relationship with the Scholars Commons in Strozier Library, and receives financial support from the College of Arts and Sciences.  Goals for the future include the establishment of a Fellows Program, with undergraduate, graduate, and faculty participants working together to produce publications on an annual theme.
