Historical Note

The John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University, often referred to as the Franklin Humanities Institute (FHI), is an interdisciplinary humanities center. The FHI's mission is "to encourage and enable serious humanistic inquiry, and to promote a heightened awareness of the centrality of the huamnities to the quality of human life, social interaction, and scholarship in all fields" and it emphasizes "scholarly work that examines issues of social equity, especially research on race and ethnicity."

The FHI was founded in 1999 by Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies Cathy Davidson and Dean of the Humanities and Social Sciences Karla Holloway, and was named for John Hope Franklin, James B. Duke Professor of History. FHI provides a variety of programs and initiatives, including the Humanities Laboratory initiative, which provides groups of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students with spaces for collaborative work; a Faculty Book Manuscript Workshop; an annual residential seminar of faculty, graduate students, and professional staff; and annual lectures, among others.
