director's welcome

Perez-Simon Welcome to the Charles Phelps Taft Research Center at the University of Cincinnati, a place for innovation and interdisciplinary discussion. In my role as Interim Director I am committed to work collaboratively with the Dean’s Office of the College of Arts and Sciences and the UC Office of Research in strengthening research initiatives in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. As in the past 13 years, this 2018-19 academic year the Taft Center will sponsor a variety of public lectures as well as individual and group research projects lead by UC faculty and students. We will also support a number of commemorative events throughout the year, beginning with the Hispanic Heritage Month and the Native American Heritage Month in the Fall. Finally, I am pleased to invite you to attend the graduate conference HumanitiesNOW, featuring our Dissertation Fellows as well as graduate students from all over the country (February 19) and the Taft Research Symposium, a one-week series that showcases the work our five Center Fellows in conversations with interlocutors from distinguished research universities (March 19).

Wishing you all a productive academic year,

Andrés Pérez-Simón
