A Note from the Director
The Center for the Humanities is entering its second year of sponsored research on the theme of "Water." We are hosting 4 faculty fellows, 2 graduate fellows, and 2 postdocs, visiting speakers, a bi-weekly seminar, and a conference. The Wild and Scenic film festival will be held downtown during Art Hop, at the Merced Multicultural Arts Center.  We are also hosting capacity-building workshops, a brownbag series, and a Distinguished Lecture in the Humanities with Sandra Steingraber. All our events are open to the public. We hope that you can join us!
