We value the diversity of histories and stories, ideas and questions. We engage globally and locally, interrogating the boundaries of traditional canons, seeking to engage traditions beyond geographical divisions. We cross borders and examine boundaries. We believe that study of history, literature, philosophy open us to worlds of human experiences and provides us with a better understanding of ourselves and our world, its past and future, and our place within.
