The Oklahoma State University Humanities Initiative launched in Fall 2021 to increase
the visibility of humanities research on campus while also fostering the production
of new interdisciplinary projects. Its mission is to provide an inclusive and collaborative
environment to initiate new interdisciplinary research, foster dialogue, and engage
communities. This is achieved through panels and lecture series as well as a new research
clusters program. The HI also facilitates communication and networking on campus and
Our new Research Clusters Program will be launched in Fall 2022. Research clusters
will be incentivized research groups across disciplines intended to incubate new collaborative
humanities scholarship in key, cutting edge areas such as digital humanities, medical
humanities, public humanities, and environmental humanities.
The Humanities Initiative organizes an array of events to initiate new interdisciplinary
research, foster dialogue, promote humanities research on campus, and engage our communities.
