Goals and Timeline
Immigration, gentrification, incarceration, policing, institutional racism, and the legacies of segregation in housing and education are issues that continue to affect our communities. This grant opportunity invites Hoosiers to take a step back and use the humanities to look at the longer histories driving contemporary debates. We welcome diverse projects from across Indiana, addressing different themes and using a variety of public humanities formats, including reading series and civic reflection discussions; public lectures or panels; film screenings and discussions; or the creation of exhibits, web projects, walking tours or documentary films.
