Center for the Humanities

Director's Note

This semester, the Center wrapped up two years of sponsored research on the theme of "Water." In April, the Center brought water experts together from around the world for our biennial conference, “Water: Ways of Knowing and Being,” and we were also able to host three visiting artists, including two writers and an environmental filmmaker. We hope you will join us next year to continue the conversation on how the humanities and arts are vital to everyday life!
