Cornell’s Society for the Humanities was established in 1966 as one of the first humanities institutes in North America. Located in the historic home of Cornell’s first president, Andrew Dickson White, the Society annually awards fellowships for research in the humanities. Our fellowships bring distinguished visiting Society Fellows together with Cornell Faculty and Graduate Student Fellows to pursue research on an interdisciplinary focal theme. The theme for 2017-2018 is “CORRUPTION”.
Fellows offer experimental, innovative seminars on their research topics. These 4000-level courses are open to graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Those interested in auditing a course should contact the instructor for permission. The Society for the Humanities does not offer a major or a minor.
