Faculty at Rice pursue research, teaching, and service. As a research university, Rice's mission is to create new knowledge. Faculty in the School of Humanities create new knowledge in the form of books, articles, artworks, and more. We disseminate that knowledge by publishing or exhibiting our work. We also help publish others' work, by serving as editors of scholarly journals and volumes of essays; curating exhibits; guest-editing special issues of scholarly journals, or volumes of essays; and writing reviews of others' works. Publications of all kinds are how the scholarly conversation proceeds.
Our teaching and our projects with off-campus partners are embedded in our research and creative activity. The institutions where all of this takes place require our service, be that governance at Rice or participation in the many national and international scholarly associations that represent our specialized fields. These institutions suppport future generations of students and scholars.
This part of the School of Humanities website highlights our research and creative works--our contributions to the global conversation.
