• About the Project

Vision


The award-winning Arizona State University initiative, Project Humanities, strives to be a leader in local, national, international conversations about the breadth, depth, and value of humanities study and humanist practice and understanding across disciplines and communities. Project Humanities seeks to connect the University and local communities in talking, listening, and connecting. We further seek to establish and lead multidisciplinary and inclusive public programming that engages local, national, and international communities in humanities discussions.

Mission

Project Humanities facilitates critical conversations among diverse communities through talking, listening, and connecting. By exploring shared ideas and experiences, we are committed to broadening audience perspectives and showing the interconnectedness of humanities within and across disciplines, positively impacting how people think and behave in our daily lives.

“In all things that are purely social, we can be as separate as the fingers, yet as one as the hand in all things essential to mutual progress.”
