The Research and Innovation (R&I) Humanities & Humanistic Social Sciences (HHSS) program aims to promote creativity and excellence by supporting humanities and humanistic social science faculty in their individual and collective scholarly work. The activities supported will encompass multiple diverse and plural modes of thinking, doing and being, in an extremely broad range of media. The humanities and humanistic social sciences take a rich qualitative approach to the study of human creative thought and expression, and apply it to understanding and contextualizing how people process and document the human experience through events, ideas, policies, and human relationships. Humanities and humanistic social science scholarship produces better-informed leaders, innovators, and global citizens with a social conscience who are able to express their views persuasively and through different media and forms. The University of Southern California (USC) understands the importance of supporting faculty in the humanities and humanistic social sciences, given their invaluable perspective and consideration of cultural assumptions, patterns, and structures of thought. Humanities and humanistic social sciences also can contribute inventive concepts and approaches to topics like energy, sustainability, literature, art, philosophy, anthropology, and many other areas that result in impactful research, creative works, and scholarship.
