Designed to encourage academic professionalization, the IHC Graduate Affiliates Program will foster a community of graduate student scholars to engage in dialogue around the events of the 2015-16 IHC series The Humanities and the Brain. (more…)
The IHC fosters interdisciplinary research in the humanities, fine arts and humanistic social sciences. Its grants support scholarship that makes original contributions to established areas of humanistic study, traverses disciplinary boundaries and advances emerging fields of inquiry. The IHC is also committed to developing projects that engage humanistic practices in addressing issues of social consequence. A cornerstone of the Center’s activities is its year-long public events series, which explores topics and issues of far-reaching concern. As a member of the UC Consortium of Humanities Centers, the IHC serves as a link between the campus community and the University of California system.
