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, from 4 to 5:30 PM in the Allen and Sally Fernald APPE space, the McGillicuddy Humanities Center, as part of the Life of Ideas series curated by Frédéric Rondeau, will host scholar Enzo Traverso, the Susan and Barton Winokur Professor in the Humanities at Cornell University. Traverso will give a talk based on his latest book, “Burdens of the Past. The Age of Left-Wing Melancholia.”
This talk is part of MHC’s 2017-2018 symposium on Juvenescence/Obsolescence: Humanities Approaches to Aging across the Ages
