Humanities and the Liberal Arts: a Conversation with Dianne Harris

September 29, 2018, 9:00 AM


Dianne Harris is a senior program officer at the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, where she focuses on higher education and scholarship in the humanities. From 2015 to 2017 she served as dean of the College of Humanities and as professor of history at the University of Utah. She holds a Ph.D, in architectural history from the University of California, Berkeley.

Her numerous award-winning publications include three monographs and two coedited volumes, and she is particularly well-known for her scholarly contributions on the relationship between the built environment and the construction of racial and class identities. Her nomination by President Barack Obama to serve on the National Council on the Humanities is just one among many ways that her preeminence as a scholar and advocate for the humanities has been recognized.
