The University of New Hampshire, a founding member of NEHC, is the recipient of a $724,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Center for Humanities at UNH will utilize these funds to host summer institutes dedicated to training humanists for work in the public realm and community engagement.
In the coming months, Amherst College, the University of Connecticut, and Wellesley College will be hosting speakers as part of the event series Time's Up: What Now?
The first speaker will be Kate Manne, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Cornell University and author of Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny. Professor Manne will be visiting the three campuses for a variety of events from October 29-November 2.
More information about events and future speakers will be added at a later date.
