This presentation outlines the work of IPRH and the humanities more broadly on campus. Prof. Burton argues that humanistic inquiry has certain core definitions but that the way it manifests itself institutionally depends on local conditions. At Illinois, where STEM is predominant, humanists must balance the competing demands on their research agendas generated by forces and resources both north and south of Green. Making that tension a source of new knowledge production and of flourishing for faculty and students is a major feature of institutional life for humanists at Illinois, who are at the forefront of sponsored research accomplishment among the nation’s public universities.
