28 May 2015 – The University of Rochester recently announced the creation of a Humanities Center to support multidisciplinary engagement around literature, history, the arts, and philosophies of cultures past and present with the aim of fostering educated, contributing global citizens. The goal of the center is to enhance the study of the humanities at Rochester while strengthening ties to related disciplines. Joan Shelley Rubin, Dexter Perkins Professor in History and director of graduate studies in Rochester’s history department will serve as interim director. Preliminary work on the center’s strategic plan will begin in the fall and continue once a permanent director is named.
