Human/Ties is a four-day celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the National Endowment for the Humanities. From September 14-17, some of America’s leading thinkers will gather at the University of Virginia to honor the NEH’s rich history and explore the vital role that humanities play in our increasingly interconnected and complex world. The forum will feature lectures, panel discussions, performances, film screenings, interviews, and art exhibits by scholars, writers, artists, cultural experts, and more. All events will be free and open to the public. Human/Ties is sponsored by the University of Virginia, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and numerous other partners.
