"Public Humanities Initiative" Grant

We are happy to announce that the HI is a recipient of a substantial grant from the PSU Arts and Humanities Strategic Plan Implementation program in support of our "Public Humanities Initiative." In partnership with Prof. Matt Jordan and our colleagues from the Bellisario College of Communications, we are now set to begin planning our video series and podcast series. In these programs we will engage in sustained conversations about scholarship in the humanities that inform and enrich discussions of the most pressing issues of the day. http://news.psu.edu/story/496639/2017/12/04/strategic-planning/penn-state-invests-2-million-support-strategic-priorities
