The winner of the CCHA Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome has been announced! Please join us in congratulating Dr. Meryl Shriver-Rice as she will be off to Rome for a one month fellowship to continue her work on “The Etruscan Table” this June!
Fellow friends of CCHA and supporters of the humanities,
I am writing to you to inform you about some updates in addition to offering you an opportunity that will be mutually beneficial! For starters, we now have a fully functional LinkedIn page, Facebook page, Twitter account, and a blog. Please see the links to these below and note that we would love you to “like us” and “follow us” if you are willing and able to do so.
Today is Humanities Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill! Humanities advocates from around the country will be meeting with their Members of Congress to make the case for humanities funding.
For those of you who could not join us in Washington, there are still ways to show your support for humanities funding by email and Twitter.
Tuesday, March 15th is not just the Ides of March, it is also Humanities Advocacy Day in Washington, DC. National Endowment for the Humanities Chairman William “Bro” Adams will deliver the speech “Beyond the 50th: New Directions at NEH,” and according to an advanced copy of the speech, we at CCHA are elated to hear that he outlines the plan to “invest more heavily in this [Community College Humanities] sector, beginning with grants that will be announced in late March of this year.” This is just the beginning of the push for the humanities, and we want you to help us get the word out tomorrow!
We just wanted to let everyone know about a great event happening this week in New York City. It is New York City Digital Humanities (NYCDH) Week!
Whether you are a casual fan of the humanities or teach in the humanities in one of the nation’s community colleges, we would like to welcome you to the blog for the Community College Humanities Association. Feel free to poke around, read, and even submit content for future publication, which can be facilitated on this blog or in our Community College Humanities Review journal.
