Human Ties
Connecting across physical distance

An important message about Human Ties...

Dear readers:

For the past 20 weeks, in response to our changed environment, New Hampshire Humanities has been delivering Human Ties to your inbox every Thursday. We'd like to announce a slight shift in our schedule that allows us to devote more time to developing new programs and promoting the cultural organizations who are beginning to offer digital programs of their own. Starting in August, you'll receive Human Ties every other week, and in the mean time, check out upcoming programs hosted by our partners, found here on our online calendar!

Thank you for your wonderful responses to our recent programming and we look forward to continuing to bring you thoughtful, informative, enlightening, and inspiring humanities programming that's accessible to all!
This week's Humanities to Go Online :
"How to Be a Fascist"

Please join us this Friday at 5 pm when Dr. Graziella Parati (Dartmouth) will discuss the history of fascism. Many people talk about fascism, but what is it? How does it gain power? This will be a live presentation via Zoom and it’s free! Register here .

Remembering Anne Zachos...

We extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Anne Zachos, a passionate supporter of the humanities who served two terms on our Board, from 1987-1995 and 2005-2011. We are grateful to Anne for her long-time commitment to our work, and would like to share this special tribute from the NH Charitable Foundation. Read
