About Us

The Glasscock Center is dedicated to fostering and celebrating the humanities and humanities research among the community of scholars at Texas A&M University and in the world beyond the academy.

The Glasscock Center awards residential fellowships, research fellowships, course development grants, funding for working groups, publication support, and research matching awards for independent and cross-disciplinary research in the humanities. Fellows and grant recipients are integral to the Center’s on-going programs and activities through their participation in bi-weekly coffeesfaculty and graduate colloquia, working groups, and seminar series. The Glasscock Center also recognizes outstanding scholarship annually with an international book prize, the Susanne M. Glasscock Humanities Book Prize for Interdisciplinary Scholarship, which is accompanied by a guest lecture from the recipient and the external reader. Coordinated by the Glasscock Center, the Mary Jane and Carrol O. Buttrill ’38 Endowed Fund for Ethics supports an annual lecture, a roundtable discussion, and course grant on the investigation of ethical issues.

Growing from the Interdisciplinary Group for Historical Literary Studies, founded in 1987, the Center for Humanities Research was created by the Board of Regents of Texas A&M University in 1999 and received a naming endowment in 2002. This name change recognizes an extraordinary gift from Melbern G. Glasscock ’59 and Susanne M. Glasscock, which constitutes a sustaining endowment for the Center.

The Glasscock Center is a unit of the College of Liberal Arts and is located on the third floor of the Glasscock Building on the Texas A&M University Campus.
