As young scholars, undergraduate students at Miami have lots to contribute to the academic community. However, many humanities majors may find themselves at a loss to navigate and understand the disciplinary methods behind research in their fields. Perhaps some are even asking themselves, “Why do research in the humanities?”
Each year the Humanities Center offers a talk to undergraduate humanities majors interested in research. Whether these students are coming with research projects in mind, or are simply curious about how academic research works, The Path to Research in the Humanities will introduce students to the benefits and purpose of research in the humanities and connect students with resources to get their projects started.
