About the Cogut Institute for the Humanities

The Cogut Institute for the Humanities at Brown University advances collaborative research and curricular innovation in the humanities and across the university. 

Our annual fellowship program brings together faculty, postdoctoral, graduate, and undergraduate fellows to explore work-in-progress in a dynamic workshop setting. We offer a Doctoral Certificate in Collaborative Humanities, featuring team-taught seminars on transdisciplinary topics, and provide cutting-edge research seminars for undergraduates. A rich array of programming — conferences, lecture series, and colloquia — enhances the Institute’s core research and curricular mission, creating a lively space of inquiry and dialogue that draws in faculty, students, and members of the larger Providence community.

The Cogut Institute for the Humanities is a member of the New England Humanities Consortium (NEHC) and the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes (CHCI).
