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."
