Global Humanities Institutes

CHCI Global Humanities Institutes are multiyear projects devoted to a research theme, method, practice, or problem in the humanities that would benefit directly from an international, collaborative approach to it. Beginning with pilot Institutes in 2018, CHCI will leverage the unique strengths of its expanded network to implement a model for collaboration that elaborates upon our first four international research projects.

IDEAS is a new platform for CHCI, reflecting the current state of the Consortium. Sara Guyer explains how CHCI always has been devoted to ideas—new and old, familiar and strange—opening a rare space in which experimentation in institutional forms and forms of knowledge overlaps.


African Humanities Map

Building on its experience cultivating regional humanities networks in a global context and coordinating multi-institutional projects that test its unique potential to support humanities research, CHCI will undertake a new regional initiative in Africa.
