Whitney Humanities Center

A carved image of a ship

The Whitney Humanities Center is an interdisciplinary institution that reflects Yale University’s longstanding commitment to the humanities. The Whitney promotes research and scholarly exchange across fields and is especially committed to supporting the activities of faculty and students whose work transcends departmental boundaries. The Whitney is also home to the Humanities Program, an interdisciplinary council of scholars from eleven departments responsible for two of Yale’s most prestigious interdepartmental undergraduate programs: Directed Studies and the Humanities major.

Beyond this, the Whitney hosts a wide array of events, from international symposia and lectures to screenings, festivals, conferences, workshops, and visits by distinguished filmmakers sponsored throughout the year by Films at the Whitney.
