The Institute began its work in the spring of 1992. It was conceived as perhaps the first university research center in our country, designed to develop fundamental humanities in direct connection with the educational activities of all levels, that is, to promote the integration of academic and university-based knowledge.
Most of our faculty came from academic institutes bringing with them their research experience, research programs and projects that later have been developed as part of the Institute’s academic curriculum, resulting in publications, dissertations and academic courses.
The results are published in external publications and journals, and in RSUH-based publications: the “Arbor Mundi” magazine and the series “Readings on the History and Theory of Culture”.
Our faculty members teach at various faculties of RSUH. The Institute offers M.A. and Ph.D. programs and also conducts inter-faculty seminars for graduate students.
