  • CONFERENCE Civil Wars: Narrating Horror & Hope, March 28 & 29

Welcome

Since its founding in 2005, the University at Buffalo’s Humanities Institute (HI) has quickly established itself as the single most important entity supporting the humanities in Western New York.  Scholarship in the humanities helps us to question, comprehend, and transform an increasingly complex world.  Humanists explore the ethical responsibilities that humans bear toward each other and the world.  The most intractable human problems cannot be solved from within a single discipline, but must be approached from a variety of perspectives.
