  • Faculty Research Seminars, 1997-2010
    One of the longest-running programs at the DHI, faculty research seminars have supported interdisciplinary engagement around a wide range of topics for more than 100 scholars since 1997.
    In response to the fiscal crisis in higher education, the DHI ran this blogsite throughout 2009-10 to provide an open forum for UC Davis humanities faculty and graduate students to discuss issues related to research in our field, its place in the university, and its value to our students and the public. The POV blog was re-opened in 2011 for posting by faculty in the humanities, broadly defined, in response to campus protests and the pepper-spraying incident of November 18, 2011.
  • Public Intellectuals Forum
    Seeking to build bridges between the academy and the community, between 2007 to 2010 this high-profile speakers series brought hundreds of Davis scholars and residents together at Bistro 33 in downtown Davis to hear from and talk with socially-engaged scholars about key issues for the 21st century.
  • Visiting Scholars, 2009-2010
    Spurred by participation in the ACLS Recent Dissertation Recipient fellowship program coordinated through the Consortium for Humanities Centers and Institute, the DHI first opened its doors to visiting scholars in 2009. Profiles of current visiting scholars can be found under Research.
