UC Davis Humanities Institute

The UC Davis Humanities Institute is an interdisciplinary research center that supports UC Davis faculty and graduate students in the arts, humanities and humanistically-oriented social sciences. Through its core programs – faculty research seminars and research clusters – as well as public events and special initiatives like the Mellon Public Scholars Program and the Mellon Research Initiatives, the DHI works to develop and nurture interdisciplinarity, collaboration, engaged scholarship, and intellectual community among scholars at UC Davis and beyond.

The DHI advocates broadly for the humanities through membership in the UC Humanities Network, a system-wide network of humanities centers that, along with the UC Humanities Research Institute, provides a wide range of financial and intellectual resources for scholars in the arts and humanities throughout the state of California.
