The 2001 annual meeting of CHCI was held in Minneapolis on November 9-10. The conference was organized and hosted by the Univ. of Minnesota Humanities Institute and locale for the event was the impressive Weisman Art Museum, designed by architect Frank Gehry. The objective of the meeting was to bring participants together to assess the changing situation of the humanities and humanities research in institutional, academic, public settings, as well as in contemporary culture. A number of panels were developed that identified particular issues relating to humanities research. These included “Publicizing the Humanities,” Techniques Knowledge,” “Instituting Gender,” and “Global Knowledge, Local Practices.” There was also an informal session entitled “How to Run a Humanities Institute: FAQ’s for New Center Directors.”
