Connecting people with ideas (no matter what)
Human Ties
Connecting across physical distance
Special program note:

Please join us Friday, January 8 at 5 pm for our next Humanities to Go Online presentation, “The Civic Reckoning that was 2020 (and What it Means for Teaching and Learning Civics).” Get ready for this audience-interactive online program on the civic principles at the center of 2020’s meltdown. Dianna Gahlsdorf Terrell, Ph.D. (Saint Anselm College) will lead this talk on core democratic principles, how they are — and can be — taught in New Hampshire’s classrooms, and what civic knowledge must be most durable to withstand our democracy’s more challenging times.
Terry Farish, New Hampshire Humanities’ former Connections coordinator, wrote this moving article for InDepthNH about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on two women from Nepal who came to the Granite State to attend Keene State College.
Watch Connections program manager Mary Nolin read Whoever You Are. This book, written by Mem Fox and illustrated by Leslie Staub, encourages us to remember our similarities to each other. Activities to accompany the book suitable for all age and literacy levels are available on our website.
Listen to “The World of the Wampanoag” from the Ben Franklin’s World podcast, sponsored by our friends at Mass Humanities. This two-part series discusses the homeland of the Wampanoag in the place now known as New England before and after the arrival of the Mayflower in 1620.
