A message from our new Director, Emily Brady:

On May 1st, I became the new Director of the Glasscock Center for Humanities Research. It is a special honor to step into this role, which carries with it the responsibility to foster and celebrate humanities research among the community of scholars at Texas A&M and beyond. It is a real privilege to carry out this responsibility, and I very much look forward to working with everyone at the University to achieve the Center’s mission and build upon its wonderful range of activities.

As I begin the Directorship, I am eager to listen and learn from the TAMU community about their research interests and ideas as the Center moves forward. I invite you to join us for an informal ‘Meet the Director’ breakfast to meet myself, GCHR researchers, and the staff team on Tuesday, May 15th, 9-10am. If you’re not able to come along, I will also be holding drop-in hours every Tuesday morning from 9-10am, 304A Glasscock – please feel free to say hello and share your questions and ideas for the Center with me. In the fall, we are planning a celebration to mark this new and exciting phase of the Center.

I’m excited to be here, and I welcome everyone to the Glasscock Center!

With best wishes,
