Humanities for All

Across the United States, universities and colleges have been partnering with cultural institutions such as museums, historical societies, and state and local agencies to create publicly-engaged humanities projects. Humanities for All, a new initiative of the National Humanities Alliance Foundation, provides a database of over 1,500 public humanities programs throughout the country, showcasing a "wide range of humanities projects that engage with diverse publics as audiences and as partners." Visitors can search the database by keyword and filter the projects by the type of higher education institution, type of community partner, project theme, discipline, or state. Each cataloged public humanities project is categorized into at least one of the following groups: outreach, engaged research, engaged teaching, engaged public programming, and the infrastructure of engagement. About fifty projects have full profiles and the remaining have thumbnail descriptions, as well as links to every project's website. Humanities for All is based on a survey conducted in 2017-2018 and led by Daniel Fischer, a project director and postdoctoral fellow at the National Humanities Alliance Foundation.
