Fresh Perspectives with NEH Chair Dr. William Adams
William Adams, the Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, believes that government support for the public humanities is critical to our national welfare. In the last five years, the NEH has granted more than $22 million in Pennsylvania to support humanities programs, research, and collections. As the agency gears up to celebrate its 50th anniversary, Adams believes the NEH can do more to address major challenges in society. Join us as he shares his perspective on the humanities and how he hopes to influence the work of the National Endowment for the Humanities through grant initiatives such as The Common Good: Humanities in the Public Square, Standing Together: The Humanities and the Experience of War and the Public Scholar Program.
Organized by the Humanities Center at Carnegie Mellon University, Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council and Pennsylvania Humanities Council.
