About the Centre for the Humanities
If you write about the Centre for the Humanities, we would greatly appreciate it if you included the following information:
The Centre for the Humanities (CfH) of Utrecht University is the platform for pioneering work, innovative research and research training activities. The CfH aims to bundle the Faculty of Humanities' most innovative and excellent research and to present it to the outside world. This way a broader non-academic audience can become aware of the relevance of the humanities.
With the question 'What is Human about the Humanities?' the CfH aims to investigate different aspects of the fundamental categories within the humanities, in an interdisciplinary perspective. The CfH actively cooperates with the leading research institutes of the Faculty, the City of Utrecht and the Treaty of Utrecht organisation. For more information, visit www.uu.nl/cfh.
