* Research activities and aims

The Minerva Humanities Center promotes innovative interdisciplinary research in the humanities. The Center holds forums for reflection and intellectual debate that bring together researchers from a variety of national, cultural, and disciplinary backgrounds. It supports research projects dealing with historical or current reciprocal ties between knowledge, culture, and politics, and with the development of innovative teaching and writing methods that translate the theoretical interest in such issues into tangible academic work. The Center strives to broaden the target audience of the humanities and amplify their public influence while at the same time carrying on the tradition of critical thought that has always been associated with them.
