Established in 1989, the Center for Ideas and Society is an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research support center dedicated to advancing humanistic studies, intellectual exchange, and creativity at UC Riverside. Our fellowships, research workshops and public events strengthen the academic, social, and creative life of the university. We are committed to disseminating the results of these projects to the Riverside and desert communities, and beyond.
