Humanities Faculty

UCI Humanities faculty introduce us to new ways of seeing the world and working through its challenges; they broaden the historical record to include cultures and identities that might otherwise be overlooked; they bring the past and present to life through stories, 3-D worlds and computer games; and they bridge disciplines to connect us to ideas that matter.
