Humanities Moments

Humanities Moments

We’ve all had “humanities moments” — when our lives were made richer, more poignant, and meaningful because of the insights the humanities provide.

National Humanities Center: This is Us

The National Humanities Center is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to advanced study in all areas of the humanities.

The Humanities Moments project was created by the Center in an effort to gather, store, and share personal accounts about how the humanities illuminate our lives, help us better understand one another, and give us the means to appreciate where we came from and to take stock of where we’re going.

This exhibit includes Moments contributed by some of the individuals most closely involved with the National Humanities Center and helps shed light on their shared passion for the humanities.

This is us and we would love to share our moments with you. We invite you to do the same and share your moment with us.
