The Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research supports research that advances knowledge through investigation, inquiry, and interpretation of human experience, culture, and expressive forms. Humanities research may be grounded in traditional humanities disciplines and methods, interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research, and non-humanities or technical disciplines which clearly foreground interpretive approaches to questions of meaning in human experiences and endeavors.
