About the Corridor

The Central New York Humanities Corridor is a unique regional collaboration between Syracuse University, Cornell University, University of Rochester, Le Moyne College, and Schools of the New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium: Colgate University, Hamilton College, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Skidmore College, St. Lawrence University, Union College.

The Corridor is designed to enhance the profile, scholarly prominence, and impact of interdisciplinary humanities in Central New York; advance individual and collaborative teaching, research, and public engagement in the humanities; increase connectivity and collaboration among academic humanists throughout the region; foster cross-institutional partnerships and resource-sharing mechanisms in emerging and established scholarly fields; and enhance the productivity of its key scholars, students, and community members.

Each year more than 3,500 faculty, students, and community members participate in upwards of 200 Corridor-sponsored activities. The Corridor stands as a pioneering interdisciplinary humanities consortium, spanning Central and Upstate New York in seven selected fields of shared scholarly strengths called Research Clusters: Philosophy/Critical Theory; Linguistics; Visual Arts and Culture; Musicology/Performance Studies; Digital Humanities; Historical Studies; Literature, Language, and Culture; and Archives and Media.

The Central New York Humanities Corridor further enriches the regional humanities landscape through its sponsorship of Graduate Student Public Humanities Fellowships; Residencies by Distinguished Visiting Collaborators; and Support for faculty and student intra-Corridor travel to activities on other campuses.
