About the UConn Humanities Institute

The University of Connecticut Humanities Institute (UCHI), founded in 2001, seeks to enhance research and creativity in the humanities, broadly defined. In particular, UCHI promotes the development and productivity of University of Connecticut faculty through its fellowship, seminar, and workshop programs, by bringing outside scholars and authors to Connecticut, and by its support for scholarly conferences and journals.

UCHI promotes student scholarship by the appointment of graduate and undergraduate fellows, and through advanced courses in humanities fields. UCHI also sponsors conferences, symposia, and lectures where the learning of the humanities can inform public issues.

By exploring the full range of humanistic inquiry and methodologies the UCHI calls attention to the many ways that scholarly advances in the humanities enrich general understanding of the human condition.
