With the help of Drexel University, we’re on a mission to map, network, and celebrate the wonderfully rich humanities landscape with a project called the PA Humanities Discovery Project. Across the state people are building community, making space for new voices, sharing stories, uplifting culture, educating, solving problems creatively — what we call the tools of the humanities (even if many wouldn’t use that word). Their work has been especially critical during the pandemic, keeping us connected and inspired, while encouraging resilience and recovery.
Through the PA Humanities Discovery Project, we’re telling the first-ever story of the humanities across Pennsylvania and building a more inclusive and connected community for sharing, learning, and advocacy.
The PA Humanities Discovery Project is a joint effort of PA Humanities and Drexel University. Funding comes from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
