Institute for the Humanities
"To be a great person of business, I knew I also had to immerse myself in the humanities somehow, and as such, I wanted to work for the Institute for the Humanities."
In 2018, MacMurtrie, as a visiting artist at the Institute for the Humanities, worked with U-M students planning, building, and launching a prototype of one of the robotic sculptures.
The Institute for the Humanities acknowledges that the University of Michigan, named for Michigami, the world's largest freshwater system, sits on land stewarded by Niswi Ishkodewan Anishinaabeg--the Three Fires People, who are the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi--along with their neighbors the Seneca, Delaware, Shawnee, and Wyandot nations.
The Institute for the Humanities
We facilitate work that examines humanities traditions broadly across space and time, deepens synergies among the humanities, the arts, and disciplines across the university, and brings the voices of the humanities to public life.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Institute for the Humanities needs your support.
