A multidisciplinary hub for the study of American Culture at the University of Chicago.

About

At the University of Chicago, faculty and students pursue advanced projects on American culture from within the departments of Anthropology, Art History, Cinema and Media Studies, Economics, English, History, Linguistics, Music, Romance Languages, Philosophy, Psychology, Political Science, Public Policy, Social Thought, Sociology, Visual Arts, as well as in the Divinity School and the Law School.

The Scherer Center helps coordinate the University’s rich and diverse scholarly interest in the study of American culture by sponsoring courses, seminars, and lunch-time discussions of new work; by bringing distinguished visitors to campus for lectures, symposia, and conferences; and by developing forums for meaningful interactions among scholars of different disciplines and the public.
