About

The Georgetown Humanities Initiative aims to support the research and teaching of the University’s humanistic scholars. The Initiative embraces innovative scholarship that takes various forms, including traditional methods, digital approaches, and arts and performance. Through the projects it funds and the programming it develops, the Initiative strives to support work that has a deep impact in the academy while also engaging the public by demonstrating the continuing value of the humanities for understanding the challenges and opportunities of the human condition. The Initiative also has deep interest in innovative approaches to humanistic teaching and learning and invites the participation and collaboration of graduate and undergraduate students.
