Advancing Research in the Humanities, Linking Scholars to One Another and the Broader Maine Community
The University of Maine Humanities Center 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.
