Our research impact is achieved through the Glasscock Center’s programs, grants, and two initiatives, Global Health Humanities and Humanities: Land Sea Space. Here, we showcase some of the ways this research employs the critical methods of the humanities and humanistic social sciences to engage with emerging topics and issues and develop advanced knowledge. We include metrics to show how our grant funding supports the research of faculty and students at the university, as well as case studies which demonstrate forms of impact on the university and wider community. The Glasscock Center is proud to serve as the humanities hub on campus, through which we provide diverse opportunities for research exchange and impact across many disciplines.
