between two bookshelves episode 2

June 09, 2016 at 2:00pm - 2:30pm

On June 9, at 2 p.m. EDT, NHA will host a conference call for our members on NEH’s Humanities in the Public Square grant program with Jeff Hardwick, Assistant Director of the Division of Public Programs at NEH.

The Humanities in the Public Square program funds projects that draw on humanities scholarship to deepen public understanding of today’s most challenging issues and pressing concerns. The first awards were announced in December 2015, and awardees included colleges, universities, associations, and state humanities councils. A new call for proposals will be issued in the coming month.

Jeff will offer an overview of the first round of projects funded under this program, the issues of public concern they have addressed, and the variety of ways that they are using the humanities to address these concerns. Participants will then have the opportunity to ask questions.
