Advancing research in the humanities, linking scholars to one another and the broader Maine community

The University of Maine Humanities Initiative will host a daylong Maine Humanities Summit at the Governor Hill Mansion in Augusta on Friday, May 17.

The Summit convenes humanities, arts, and cultural professional with academic administrators, legislators, and policymakers from throughout the state. Our goal is to invigorate relationships among humanities experts and institutions across Maine. featured speakers and panelists include directors of state agencies, public libraries, historical societies, civic festivals, and faculty from the University of Maine System and elsewhere. Varied presentations and panels will provide space to discuss the present place and future relationship of the humanities (broadly construed) to the State of Maine and its citizens.

The University of Maine Humanities Initiative, housed in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, supports humanities research and teaching at UMaine, Orono; organizes and sponsors programming on and off campus; and promotes the public humanities by building institutional partnerships.
