Programs & Projects

Annual Meetings
CHCI’s Annual Meetings provide an opportunity for member directors and administrators to engage in stimulating intellectual dialogues about broadly defined, current issues in the humanities. Each Annual Meeting includes useful and lively workshops focused on management issues, programming ideas and structures, fundraising, facilities, staffing, and other operational challenges facing member directors and their staffs. Perhaps most importantly, each CHCI Annual Meeting provides invaluable opportunities to meet, network, and collaborate with peers and counterparts at humanities centers and institutes from around the world. Read more >>.

Integrating the Humanities across National Boundaries, Phases I and II, a CHCI Pilot Program Made Possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
The following four international collaborative projects grew from member-generated initiatives encouraged by a $100,000 planning grant from the Mellon Foundation and are currently in their implementation phase, funded by two major Mellon grants totaling $2.55 million. Each project focuses on an important area of interdisciplinary scholarship while also experimenting with collaborative modes and structures. The first two projects, working on a 2013-2015 timeline, are Humanities for the Environment and Religion, Secularism, and Political Belonging. The second two, working on a 2014-2016 timeline, are the Medical Humanities Program and Integrative Graduate Humanities Education and Training (IGHERT); the former is focused especially on issues surrounding aging and evidence, while the latter has taken as its theme "Indigeneity in an expanded field."
