Description
The records pertain to administrative matters, including the Center's various homes, and its programs, including fellowships, lectures, and workshops. Materials include correspondence, memoranda, reports, proposals, publicity, and photographs. Audio-visual materials are cataloged under a separate call number (SC 827) and have their own finding aid.
Background

Humanities Center programs stress work of a multidisciplinary and collaborative nature. Now one of the most dynamic humanities centers in the country, the Stanford Humanities Center offers up to thirty-five fellowships every year, supports fifteen to twenty year-long research workshops, and stages numerous public events.
