The Humanities Research Institute (HRI) supports and promotes the broad range of humanities research activities that occur at the University of Regina and in its federated colleges.
Working across the disciplines, the HRI advances humanities scholarship and research and develops innovation, interdisciplinarity, and collaboration. The HRI fosters new ways of thinking about ourselves and our world, and is designed to create a vibrant intellectual community among University of Regina students, faculty and staff, and the broader provincial, national, and international world that the HRI serves.
Why do the humanities matter?
Humanities researchers are engaged in questions that address the human condition in the world we exist in.
Through concerns of art, history, philosophy, culture, and language, humanities scholars help us to understand the complex nature of our world; by engaging these areas of study with developments in science, technology, and industry, humanities researchers are able to help us to negotiate the rapid changes and developments that threaten to overwhelm.
