Updates on Humanities Funding for FY 2018
Thank you all for taking action to support the National Endowment for the Humanities and all other humanities funding streams that were threatened this year. The outlook for most humanities funding is increasingly positive thanks your advocacy, even as the appropriations process continues to move along slowly. Please check out our blog post on where the humanities funding stands now and what will come next.
Sign Up for 1984 Discussion Groups
The National Humanities Alliance is partnering with One Book, Many Conversations on its inaugural program: a week of reading and discussion surrounding George Orwell's 1984. There are currently over 25 discussion groups, online and in person, taking place in the U.S. and the U.K. the week of October 9-15, 2017. These book discussions will encourage reflection on citizenship and serve as an opportunity to engage more advocates in promoting the public value of the humanities.
Other partners include the Seminars Program of the Aspen Institute, the University of New England, the University of Wyoming, The Shimer Great Books School of North Central College, the School of Graduate and Professional Studies of North Central College, the Center for Teaching and Learning of the United States Naval Academy, the Maine College of Art, and the Great Discourses and the Basic Program of the University of Chicago.
