Center for the Humanities

A Note from the Interim Director

Welcome! In 2014, we are launching the second year of the Merced Program in the Humanities, made possible by a generous gift, which will culminate in a conference in Spring 2015. We are excited to welcome our new research fellows and look forward to the seminar and related activities in the year ahead. All our events are open to the public, so please join us!​
