New Hampshire Humanities extends its deep gratitude to the following board members who finished their terms on our Board of Directors last month: Steve Barba, Kathy Gillett, Inez McDermott, and Dan Will.

New Hampshire Humanities is pleased to announce the 2018 recipients of our New Hampshire Humanities High School Book Awards, awarded annually to high school juniors who have demonstrated genuine curiosity about history, literature, languages, or philosophy and who hope to deepen that knowledge in college.

Join us on September 21 at 6:30 pm at the Dana Center at Saint Anselm College for the William Treat Lecture for a conversation with U.S. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) and Virginia Prescott of Georgia Public Broadcasting in "Civility, Cooperation, & Compromise: Why Our Constitutional Republic Requires Them." 

The 2018 Wyman Tavern Lecture Series focuses on indigenous people, history, and culture into the 21st century. Basket Identification Day, supported by a New Hampshire Humanities Community Project Grant, runs from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm with a presentation from 4:00-5:00 pm.

Every day hundreds of people pass by the monument to Keene settler Nathan Blake, never knowing how Blake’s fascinating story of capture, ransom, and homecoming sheds light on our shared history.

See what can happen when art and nature merge at a free community event supported by New Hampshire Humanities on Sunday, September 30 on the grounds of the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester – it will be unlike anything you've ever seen!

Carolyn Russell was the project director for the Washington Meetinghouse documentary, "Meetinghouse: The Heart of Washington, NH." As a grant recipient, a donor, and attendee of programs, Carolyn offers a unique insight into New Hampshire Humanities. We recently had the pleasure of asking her some questions over lunch.

This summer we said goodbye to someone who embodies the mission and spirit of New Hampshire Humanities, longtime program director Dr. Kathy Mathis. In every project Kathy has envisioned and brought to life, participants have been challenged to consider new knowledge, different perspectives, and our shared humanity.
