Public Humanities

From its founding, the Center has championed collaboration between scholars and the community.

The Center's public programs have flourished under this commitment: Great World Texts, an annual state-wide partnership linking UW humanities faculty and students with high school teachers; the Public Humanities Exchange (HEX), which supports community-focused projects run by humanities graduate and undergraduate students; and the Public Humanities Fellowship program, a multiyear project generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, creating professional opportunities outside of academia for UW graduate students in the humanities.
