The Society for the Humanities hosts and sponsors a range of interdisciplinary initiatives meant to enhance and expand Cornell research opportunities in the Humanities. We are currently focusing attention on three broad research projects whose details can be accessed by clicking on the links to the left: (1) the Mellon Central New York Humanities Corridor; (2) the Cornell Special Collections Project; (3) Projects in the Digital Humanities.

The Society for the Humanities also maintains active affiliations and various co-sponsorships with the School of Criticism and Theory, the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes (CHCI), and the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advanced Collaboration (HASTAC).
