4Humanities is a platform for advocacy of the humanities that draws on the expertise of the international digital humanities community. Digital methods now play a key role in showing why the humanities must be part of any vision of a future society. Viewpoints and projects presented by 4Humanities and its local chapters—statements, videos, infographics, resources, etc.—use today’s means to shout out for the humanities. (More on our mission…)
Twelve New York Six students have received fellowships from the NY6 Think Tank for the Arts and Humanities to pursue projects that demonstrate the value of the arts and humanities. The selected projects include a Flickr and Instagram campaign to explore the intersection of the arts and social justice, a project on the use of writing and narrative in health and medicine, and the creation of a campaign called The ABCs of Being a Student.
On Friday, April 17th, we will be hosting a NY6Think Tank on the subject of Humans vs. Zombies. We invite you to attend this event and submit proposals for 5-10-minute lightning talks by yourself or your students. For detailed information about the event, please go here.
CultureCase is a resource that collates peer-reviewed research that responds to the questions and challenges related to the impact of the arts and humanities within the broader cultural sector. Its relevance extends beyond academic researchers to practitioners and advocates in the cultural sector.
The Fellows Program offers students an opportunity to participate in the NY6Think Tank.
Students get to create and publish their own projects through multimedia outlets of their choice for which they will receive a stipend of $500 (upon successful completion of the project). The program will run between February 5th and May 1st, 2015.

But something kept me from taking such a path seriously.
