Humanities for the Public Good (HPG) Graduate Fellows will hold skill-building placements with local cultural institutions, on or off campus, which serve or collaborate with publics beyond the academy. Selected fellows will advance defined projects in a public interest, and will strengthen their capacity for applying public humanities methods. These graduate students will also be responsible for attending monthly workshops on-campus through the Humanities for the Public Good Initiative, over the course of the 2021-22 academic year, and agree to serve as peer mentors for future HPG fellows.

The Fellowships

Placements for this academic year (2021-2022) include:

Past fellows have worked with the Marian Cheek Jackson Center, the Latino Migration Project, the National Humanities Center, Playmakers Repertory, Historic Stagville, Southern Cultures, and the Charlotte Hawkins Brown Museum to name a few.
