Connecting people with ideas (no matter what)
Human Ties
Connecting across physical distance
Special Program Note!

Please join us tomorrow, Friday, March 5 at 5 pm for our next Humanities to Go Online event. Dr. Katherine Gaudet (UNH) will present “Plague: Stories of Epidemics.” Are we living through a Biblical plague or feeling the wrath of the gods, like Thebes in the time of Oedipus? This talk explores how stories, histories, and legends of epidemics can help us understand our own time. Join us for this free, online program on Zoom.
Check out these resources for educators (and anyone with kids at home) from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The website provides compelling questions, lesson activities, and resources for teaching about the intersection of place and history, and multimedia resources to integrate women's perspectives and experiences throughout the school year. 
Watch Connections program manager Mary Nolin read The Undefeated. This book, written by Kwame Alexander and illustrated by Kadir Nelson, is a love letter to Black life in the U.S. It won the Caldecott Medal in 2020. Activities to accompany the book suitable for all age and literacy levels are available on our website.
Sign up now to hear a panel discussion on “The Power of Place: Martha’s Vineyard and the Growth of the Black Elite” on Sunday, March 7 at 2 pm, presented by the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire. This event is part of the Elinor Williams Hooker Tea Talk series, funded in part by a Community Project Grant from New Hampshire Humanities.

Federation of State Humanities Councils

Each year in March, the Federation of State Humanities Councils hosts “Humanities on the Hill,” a three-day event that brings together humanities councils from all over the country to advocate for federal funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), which administers funding to the humanities councils.
This year, 47 humanities councils with more than 200 staff, board, and constituents have been meeting virtually with our counterparts across the country. New Hampshire Humanities staff and Board are proud to participate this week, and we thank the Federation for providing the opportunity to come together, share our work, and learn from each other. Learn more

Participation in the humanities make us and our communities richer by connecting people, bridging differences, and helping us work towards a society based in reason and understanding. Please support the experiences you love!
