Welcome to the Clement and Linda McGillicuddy Humanities Center!
Advancing Research in the Humanities, Linking Scholars to One Another and the Broader Maine Community
The Clement and Linda McGillicuddy Humanities Center (MHC) promotes the cultivation of cultural knowledge, intellectual curiosity, and critical and creative reflection. It fulfills this mission by providing funding for innovative humanities research and forums for meaningful conversations among scholars, students, and the public. The Center supports the Public Humanities, broadly construed, for the benefit of UMaine and the State of Maine.
There are always exciting humanities related events going on at UMaine or in the region. Check out our calendar of upcoming events, Facebook page, ongoing programs, and announcements below to find out what’s happening!
On March 29 at 4pm Traverso will give a talk titled “Burdens of the Past. The Age of Left-Wing Melancholia.” Traverso is one of two guest lecturers brought to UMaine by Frédéric Rondeau as part of his yearlong talk series “Life of Ideas, Notions, and Concepts” which in turn is part of the MHC’s 2017-2018 symposium is Juvenescence/Obsolescence: Humanities Approaches to Aging across the Ages.
Humanities Engaged Black Bear Digital Badge
The McGillicuddy Humanities Center is proud to announce the launch of our brand new Humanities EBB Digital Badge.
Center Director Jennifer Moxley worked with students to design this new Humanities Badge as part of the Engaged Black Bear Initiative. We hope this will get UMaine students more engaged with campus, each other, and the humanities. Check out the Humanities EBB Digital Badge page for more details!
