About Us

Research into the human condition—how we live in the world and how we live with each other—is vital to the cultivation of a just and equitable society. At the Institute for the Humanities, we organize programs that examine and interrogate humanities traditions broadly across space and time. We aim to deepen synergies among the humanities, the arts, and disciplines across the university, and to bring the insights of the humanities to public life.

In addition to a wide array of public and scholarly events, including public lectures, workshops, discussions and art exhibitions, we also provide fellowships for Michigan faculty, graduate students, and visiting scholars who work on humanities subjects.
