Humanities for All Launches Website Today

Tuesday, July 10, 2018   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Evangeline Mee

Humanities for All, a new website that documents the past ten years of publicly engaged humanities work in U.S. higher education, has launched. The Humanities for All website catalogs 1,402 publicly-engaged projects. Fifty-one of these projects—representing the breadth of the field—have in-depth profiles. These profiled projects, based at a range of institutions across the U.S., address diverse local, national, and global concerns with different disciplines, methodologies, and partners.

 

Humanities for All serves three key goals: 

  1. to support the efforts of humanities faculty and students interested in embarking on or deepening their own publicly engaged work;
  2. to serve as a resource for advocating for the relevance of the humanities in addressing society’s pressing concerns; and
  3. to provide examples that can broaden narratives about the value of the humanities in higher education beyond a narrow focus on return on investment.

Humanities for All thanks the many members who shared projects with them and encouraged others to do so during the research phase of the project. Humanities for All invites you to explore the website and let them know about any additional projects they should include. Humanities for All was made possible with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

 

Participate in the Humanities for All Launch

Please share the site with your members and colleagues and encourage them to share projects via social media with the hashtag #humanitiesforall.
