  1. The Undergraduate Humanities Fellows Program combines a summer of research guided by a faculty mentor with an interdisciplinary course in the fall. Students work one-on-one with their mentor over the summer and then develop that research in a collaborative seminar that exposes them to the possibilities and excitement, of humanistic inquiry. Students in the program spent fall break in NYC exploring the humanities in cultural institutions around the city, while also finding opportunities to continue their research.
  2. Friday, October 9

  3. Our trip began with an early start. By 7 a.m., we were on the train, heading north from Richmond. Of course a road trip involves plenty of snacks, as well as a few naps.

  15. We started our day with individual site visits based on our own research. The New York Public Library was an obvious destination. The collection houses more than 51 million items, including books, e-books, maps, DVDs, manuscripts -- anything you could possibly need to conduct humanities research.
  16. #urhumanitiesfellows spend the morning working on independent research.
