Welcome to the Humanities Center at Carleton
Student Research Assistantships
Student-Faculty collaboration is a centerpiece of the Humanities Center's programming. We support about a dozen Student Research Assistantships per year; these bring together students and professors who engage in collaborative work that enhances the faculty member’s scholarship while providing mentoring and experience to the student.

Digital Humanities projects are proliferating at Carleton as faculty members integrate digital technologies into their research and teaching. Reference & Instructional Librarian Iris Jastram oversees a group of digital humanities associates who help faculty develop digital humanities projects. The program is housed in the Gould Library and is staffed by students funded through the Humanities Center, Gould Library, and ITS, with help from Austin Mason, ITS staff and the Director of the Humanities Center.

Intellectual life at Carleton is the most engaged and productive when faculty scholars are debating new ideas that infuse both their teaching and their research. The Humanities Center seeks to encourage these integrative connections through Faculty Research Seminars, a multidisciplinary effort that promotes excellence and innovation in scholarship, and then extends the resulting intellectual excitement to the rest of the campus through a public forum.

The Humanities Center seeks to build and maintain connections with other institutions and individuals in Northfield and beyond. We sponsor many events that reach out to the local community, and we are working to build more links with other Humanities organizations. Learn more.
