SUNY Delhi Seeks Collaborators for Humanities-Based Events through Grant Opportunity

Grant to be used for talks and community events in the Catskills region

Delhi, NY (08/27/2021) — SUNY Delhi's School of Liberal Arts and Sciences is seeking local partners to collaborate through a significant grant opportunity from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). If awarded, the grant will be used to fund a series of public, humanities-based talks and community events in the Catskills region over a 2-year period.

SUNY Delhi invites potential community partners to propose ideas that align with the NEH's theme "to form a more perfect union," commemorating the Constitution's 250th anniversary. The NEH's vision is to build community through the humanities. The initiative encourages projects that explore, reflect on, and tell the stories of a quest for a more just, inclusive, and sustainable society. It particularly welcomes projects surrounding questions of racial justice, gender equality, and the evolution of the American landscape.

"We are looking for ideas and events that help establish meaningful connections among our region's diverse populations through direct audience engagement such as lectures, performances, arts, historic exhibits, and discussion programs, among others," said Daniel Gashler, associate professor at SUNY Delhi. "The proposed projects should encourage dialogue and educate as they engage."
