The Institute for the humanities at the University of Illinois at Chicago seeks to foster an intellectually vital, interdisciplinary community of scholars working in one of the nation's most exciting urban research centers. As the hub of humanities scholarship on campus, the Institute provides a forum for intellectual exchange among faculty and students at UIC and other colleges and universities in the region as well as an avenue through which research in the humanities can become relevant and accessible to the urban public. Founded in 1983, the UIC Institute for the Humanities sponsors an annual fellowship program for faculty and advanced graduate students, supports a series of working groups and seminars, and hosts regular public events including lectures and conferences.
