The chief purposes of the Humanities Center are to nurture an intellectual community within the College of Humanities and Fine Arts; to stimulate and enrich the discussion of important ideas and themes among HFA faculty; and to encourage their professional development. To that end the Humanities Center will
Invite regularly prominent scholars to campus both to give public lectures on their work and to lead symposia for interested faculty.
Sponsor regular reading groups, some centered around the work of a recognized seminal thinker and others around an interdisciplinary theme of broad interest. To the extent that funds are available, the reading material for these groups will be provided gratis.
Establish a schedule of faculty research presentations and talks whereby both junior and senior faculty can speak on their current research interests and receive feedback from their colleagues.
Run a year-long series of art exhibitions and performances featuring the work of both local and visiting artists.
Sponsor a year-long film series.
Undertake other activities designed to encourage and support the intellectual missions of both the college and the university
