With the conviction that critical and reflective study of culture develops acumen and enhances sensibilities, the Northeastern Humanities Center supports faculty and student research in the humanities and social sciences; facilitates collaboration across disciplines; and presents humanistic and social scientific research to the wider university community and general public. Through our fellowship program, working groups, discussion forums, symposia, seminars, informal dialogues, conferences, and joint projects, the Humanities Center fosters a wide-ranging interdisciplinary exchange of ideas in an atmosphere of respect for diverse perspectives and expertise. An integral part of Northeastern University’s signature experiential liberal arts program, the Humanities Center offers opportunities for engagement with art, literature, philosophy, history, and social and political formations, thereby strengthening the foundation from which to respond meaningfully to one another and the needs of our world.
The Northeastern Humanities Center was founded in 2008. The Director, since 2022, is Ángel David Nieves, Professor of Africana Studies, History, and Digital Humanities; Director of Public Humanities.
