Did you or a fellow Syracuse University faculty/staff member or student write or edit a book this year (copyright 2021) that contributes to the humanities, broadly conceived? Tell us about it in this brief survey. Eligible books are showcased at an annual celebration.

Co-Sponsorship Request Form

To broadly support humanities research and public engagement, we foster connections across the University and with the wider community through co-sponsorships and other collaborations.

The Humanities Center has modest co-sponsorship funding available for events that align with our Mission.  It is our policy to avoid supporting events that overlap or conflict with others on our schedule, therefore, please refer to our calendar listings as you plan.

Co-sponsorship proposals are considered on a rolling basis through the year, but it is to your advantage to apply as far in advance of your event date as possible.

Co-Sponsored Event Info Sheet

If / when the Humanities Center supports your event with a co-sponsorship, submit all finalized details as early as possible, via this Publicity Info Sheet emailed to

2021 Public Humanities Grants

Humanities New York invites grant proposals from advanced graduate students in support of public programming and projects. All projects must be public-facing in some way: intended for public audiences, engaging members of the public as collaborators, or partnering with community groups. Projects of any format or type will be considered; however, projects that engage with issues of social justice and equity are particularly welcome. Grantees will also have the opportunity to take part in workshops and networking events held by the HCI partners, designed to introduce them to different skillsets and to experts of the public humanities, in order to enrich their practice.

Deadline: May 10, 2021
