As part of its work in the Public Humanities, the Glasscock Center collaborates with various programs, initiatives, and external organizations to benefit faculty and students in interdisciplinary humanities research at Texas A&M University, local communities, and the wider world beyond the academy.

Center of Digital Humanities Research

The mission of the Center of Digital Humanities Research (CoDHR), sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts, is to foster multidisciplinary research and publications that employ computational methods in the study of literature, history, and culture. Through software creation, project development, education, and the HVS, CoDHR strives to grasp and remain at the cutting edge of research in the era of mass digitization.

The Glasscock Center collaborates on workshops and other events with the Center of Digital Humanities Research, directed by Dr. Laura Mandell.


Brazos Valley Reads

Brazos Valley Reads (BVR) is a community effort organized by Texas A&M University’s department of English. The program was started in 2005 to encourage bridge-building between TAMU students and faculty, and the Brazos Valley community at large. For the past 13 years, BVR has invited internationally recognized authors, including Geraldine Brooks, Ernest Gaines, Sandra Cisneros, Tim O’Brien, Sherman Alexie, Maxine Hong Kingston, Julia Alvarez, Jennifer Clement, Joy Castro, Colson Whitehead, and Elizabeth Acevedo.

The Glasscock Center provides major co-sponsorship of BVR events.
