The Levan Institute for the Humanities supports interdisciplinary working groups with the goal of fostering intellectual exchange and advancing research on topics in the humanities (broadly construed) that are not already addressed by an existing department or program. Working groups are primarily addressed to faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students. They may involve participants at other institutions.
