Book Survey

Did you or a fellow Syracuse University faculty/staff member or student write or edit a book this year (copyright 2022) that contributes to the humanities, broadly conceived? Tell us about it in this brief survey ... any time before December 9, 2022. Eligible books are showcased at an annual spring celebration.


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

The Humanities Center has modest co-sponsorship funding available for events that align with our mission. We generally cannot support events that conflict or overlap 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.

Humanities New York and its nine partner universities comprising the Humanities Centers Initiative, invite grant proposals from advanced graduate students in support of public programming and projects.

Projects that are underway or in development are highly encouraged, with collaborations between two or more students. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously been awarded the Humanities New York Public Humanities Fellowship or Public Humanities Grant.

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 that engage with issues of social justice and equity are particularly welcome.
