Humanities Hub

Advancing the Humanities at Clemson



The Clemson Humanities Hub, an outreach project of the Humanities Advancement Board, intends to advance the outreach, scholarly, and teaching activities of the Humanities. We aim to coordinate and publicize off-campus Humanities events, turning the scholarly inquiry and public presentations of the Humanities fields into an outreach activity. In so doing, it hopes to act as a coordinator of campus presentations, an incubator for scholarship, and a steward of humanities pedagogy. We hope to offer historical perspective, cultural awareness, and considerations of value in the creation, application, and preservation of knowledge.

The HUM HUB is a fledgling humanities center.

Lee Morrissey is Founding Director of the Clemson Humanities Hub, and Alumni Distinguished Professor of English at Clemson. In addition to publishing several books on English literature, he has been a Fulbright Scholar at the National University of Ireland, and has received numerous grants and awards for both his teaching and research, including from the National Endowment for the Humanities. He has served as both the Chair of the Department of English and the Interim Associate Dean of Academic Affairs in the College of Architecture, Arts, and Humanities.

If you are a Clemson Humanities faculty member bringing a visiting speaker or speakers to campus we can help with travel and hotel arrangements.  
We can help publicize events, through a webpage, a facebook page, and through the College of AAH announcements, campus monitors, etc.
