The UC Davis Humanities Institute provides financial support, space and opportunities for research, reflection, collaborative thinking and mentoring for faculty and graduate students in the humanities.
Competitively selected faculty research seminars bring together mixed disciplinary groups across the humanities and social sciences to explore timely issues and share work-in-progress. Research clusters provide funding and opportunities for faculty and graduate students to create intellectual communities of shared interests around congruent areas or dynamic new fields. Meeting regularly to critique work and host public events, these self-generating, collaborative groups also serve as seedbeds for new programs and other campus initiatives.
Showcasing some of the exciting work being done by humanities scholars at UC Davis, the research clusters section seeks to connect faculty and graduate students across disciplines, facilitate innovative collaborations, and nurture the community of scholars in HArCS and beyond.
