Center for Humanistic Inquiry

The CHI's theme for 2016-17 is conservation. We will engage in a wide range of humanities-oriented scholarship on both nature and culture as we explore questions surrounding conservation.

Amherst Poetry Week 3/22-3/29

poetry week

Located at the heart of campus in Frost Library, the Center for Humanistic Inquiry (CHI) provides space and resources for Amherst faculty and departments to engage a broad vision of the role humanistic thinking can play in scholarly and public life. In addition we play a role in Amherst’s civic life, hosting town halls and offering programming that addresses issues significant to the entire campus community.  Each year we invite several fellows into residency at the Center to conduct research and collaborate with each other under the rubric of a resonant theme.
