"With High Stakes Art, we aim to make critical engagements with contemporary art urgent for humanities scholars and publics in southeast Michigan, particularly around social issues of concern."
The NEH, an independent federal agency created in 1965, supports research and learning in history, literature, philosophy, and other areas of the humanities by funding selected, peer-reviewed proposals from around the nation.
The Institute for the Humanities acknowledges that the University of Michigan, named for Michigami, the world's largest freshwater system, sits on land stewarded by Niswi Ishkodewan Anishinaabeg--the Three Fires People, who are the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi--along with their neighbors the Seneca, Delaware, Shawnee, and Wyandot nations.
The Institute for the Humanities
We facilitate work that examines humanities traditions broadly across space and time, deepens synergies among the humanities, the arts, and disciplines across the university, and brings the voices of the humanities to public life.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Institute of Humanities needs your support.
