The Dresher Center for the Humanities supports and promotes research into the historical, cultural, and social dimensions of the human experience
at UMBC, in the Baltimore-Washington region, and beyond. The Dresher Center’s Humanities Forum offers a free program of events that illustrate the richness of contemporary work in philosophy, history, culture, language, literature, and the arts. The
Forum showcases the many connections that bring
together the humanities, the social sciences, and the sciences.

At the Dresher Center, scholars come together to examine and explore, to address enduring questions, and to ask new ones. We look for the meaning that comes from testing theories, from thinking in new directions, and from creating knowledge that will transform the way we understand the world.
