From cinema studies, history, and legal and business ethics, to Middle Eastern and Islamic studies, performance studies, and the arts, NYU boasts a wide range of outstanding departments and programs in the humanities as broadly defined. The Center supports colleagues working in these and other fields through faculty and doctoral fellowships, working groups, small grants, and other programs. The Center also hosts public events and contributes to events on campus and at NYU’s sites abroad.
