Affiliated UT Research Centers
The UT Humanities Center works closely with other humanities-focused research centers on campus to provide additional opportunities for collaboration, program support, resources, and community for UT faculty and graduate students. We encourage you to explore some of the exciting work being done at our fellow research institutes on campus!
The Center for the Study of Tennesseans and War is located in Hoskins Library at the University of Tennessee. It is our mission to research, archive, and disseminate the stories of all the people in Tennessee who have been involved in wars between 1700 and the present day. These stories are powerful. Wars have shaped the contours of life in our region. Studying these stories helps us all remember the sacrifices people have made in the past. And, if we listen, these stories can help us to understand the world we live in today.
The Fern and Manfred Steinfeld Program in Judaic Studies is the center for the study of Jews and Judaism at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. It offers a variety of public and academic programs that enhance student learning, promote Jewish Studies scholarship, and contribute to the intellectual life of the Knoxville community and beyond.
The Marco Institute is an internationally acclaimed center for the study of the history and culture of the premodern world, from roughly 300 to 1700 C.E. With our rich schedule of lectures, workshops, and symposia; multiple fellowship opportunities for faculty and graduate students; graduate certificate and Summer Latin Program; and undergraduate major and minor, we pursue the research and teaching of the early periods at the highest levels.
Andrew Jackson is one of the most critical and controversial figures in American history. A dominant actor on the American scene in the period between the Revolution and Civil War, he stamped his name first on a mass political movement and then an era. At the same time Jackson’s ascendancy accelerated the dispossession and death of Native Americans and spurred the expansion of slavery.
The Papers of Andrew Jackson is a project to collect and publish Jackson’s entire extant literary record.
