Public Humanities

The public humanities bring the ideas and insights of the humanities to the general public and cultivate a dialogue between the academic humanities and non-specialists. Public humanists engage in public intellectual work and make art, history, philosophy, and culture meaningful and accessible, as well as address issues of public importance.
