Institute for the Humanities
Director: Jila Ghomeshi
UMIH was established in 1990 to foster research and scholarship in the Humanities at the University of Manitoba, to promote cross-disciplinary research in the Humanities,and to help obtain external funding for Humanities research. The Institute addresses the needs and interests of researchers in a broad range of subjects including literature and languages,film and visual culture, philosophy, history, and religion, and also the literary, philosophical, theological, and historical aspects of the social and physical sciences, mathematics, the arts, and professional studies. UMIH is located within the Faculty of Arts but is intended to serve the entire Humanities constituency in the University and the general community. The Institute is accordingly committed to community outreach through programs and lecture series for the general public.
