The Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere at the University of Florida has three interrelated purposes:
Building on the work of individual departments, the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere emphasizes collaboration and critical discussion as its basic program models.
humanities allow us to explore the question: what does it mean to be
human? They include efforts to understand, evaluate, and communicate
human experiences, values, and aspirations to improve the human
condition. Through comparative and global study, humanities scholars
foster in students and communities a critical concern for civic and
moral responsibility. While the
humanities have traditionally flourished in the disciplines of history, philosophy, literatures, and
languages, they inform every inquisitive endeavor.
