Institute for the Humanities
The grant will support proposal development for a project focused on learning from and coordinating water-centered, humanistic public engagement efforts in the Great Lakes region.
"My project started with a very uninformed interest in the art of southwest China--the books, as I’ve mentioned, along with songs and ways of moving through the landscape."
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 for the Humanities needs your support.
