Northeastern Humanities Center Year in Review Features NEHC

Our colleagues at Northeastern University Humanities Center had quite the productive 2018-2019 academic year, including funding residential fellowships, and sponsoring and hosting various events and programs, the latter of which included events funded or sponsored by the New England Humanities Consortium (NEHC). With generous support from the Mellon Foundation, NEHC and its member institutes, including Northeastern, hosted a number of events as part of the Time’s Up: What Now? series, which explored current expressions of the “Time’s Up” movement, sexism, misogyny, and romance. Northeastern was also among three NEHC-member institutes to host Laurie Essig, professor of Gender, sexuality, and Feminist Studies at Middlebury College. Her visit was part of an alternative Valentines’ Day activity to discuss “feminist perspectives on online dating and romance.” Finally, Northeastern professor of history, Martin Blatt, received $9,500 in funding from the NEHC toward his project “William Apess’ Eulogy on King Philip – Public Reading and Panel Discussion.” Read about these and much more on the Northeastern Humanities Center Website.
