What is a Humanities Center?  

"In my opinion, humanistic scholarship is the core of the university.  It has been since universities first existed.  A center like this is the engine driving that core.  It fosters creative interdisciplinary research that increases UT's visibility – lets people know how wonderful the faculty are here.  It helps the reputation of UT.  It translates into better graduate education, and it certainly translates into, I would say, more effective undergraduate teaching."
