The Institute of Arts and Humanities houses cross‐divisional research centers that spearhead the production of cutting‐edge scholarship, collaboration, and public engagement by faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates. Interdisciplinary at their core, the Center for Hellenic Studies and the Center for Humanities forward the shared vision of the Institute of Arts and Humanities in their events and programming, visiting scholars programs, graduate and postdoctoral fellowships, and collaboration with likeminded centers across the UC system, the U.S., and the world.

The Center for Hellenic Studies specializes in the history, literature, archaeology, and cultures of the Ancient, Byzantine, and Modern Greek world, including the study of South Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean, and beyond.



The Center for the Humanities has been consolidated into the Institute of Arts and Humanities, and the Center’s activities will be performed under the Institute of Arts and Humanities name. These activities extend the Institute of Arts and Humanities reach into the humanistic social sciences, STEM fields, and across campus by serving as a featured site for Institute of Arts and Humanities events and programming in our four‐pronged thematic focus on 1) Equity, Diversity and Inclusion; 2) Global Arts and Humanities; 3) Public Arts and Humanities; and 4) Digital Arts and Humanities.
