Education is not the filling of pail, but the lighting of a fire.”  -William Butler Yeats

Marquette’s Center for the Advancement of the humanities aims to bring faculty out of their offices and into common spaces where we can collaborate, have fun, and learn from one another.

If you are looking to build relationships outside of your department and conduct your research in conversation with colleagues of different disciplines, then you have come to the right place.  Colleagues outside of humanities disciplines are welcome too!


Faculty Guide to the Center for the Advancement of the Humanities

Getting Started:

  • Sign up for our monthly ‘Hummus & Humanities’ get together. These are informal gatherings in which we get to know one another and talk about our research and experiences in the classroom.
  • Join an Interdisciplinary Research Team. Teams consist of 3-5 members. Submit your name and research interests and Center staff will assemble teams based on potential for overlap. If you already have a team in mind, submit the names and research interests of each member.
  • Participate in the Humanities Research Colloquium
  • Apply for grants and fellowships.
