About the IHR

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



Our initiatives promote cross-disciplinary research that examines essential and timely topics.
