The Institute for Humanities Research at Arizona State University

The Institute for Humanities Research supports scholarship exploring human thought, expression and experience, and addressing many of the central challenges facing all of us. ASU humanities scholars of culture, language, literature, the arts, film, media, history, philosophy and religion work within their disciplines and in collaboration with scientists, social scientists, artists and others to advance research that makes a difference in the world.

Enhance your research with collaboration

By facilitating collaboration among scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, the IHR's programs expose faculty in many fields to what humanities research is, how it operates, and why it is important. These programs bring ASU faculty together with faculty of other disciplines and with scholars across the world.
