What is Hype-the-Humanities?

Hype-the-Humanities is a HUGEmanitiesTMProject initiative, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in partnership with the UNH College of Liberal Arts and The New Hampshire Humanities Collaborative. Hype-the-Humanities is a 2020 initiative that is focused on delivering digital artifacts of culminating COLA departmental events in an effort to publicize the dedication and achievements of our College of Liberal Arts Students. In this way, we can applaud our COLA students whose deserved end-of-semester attention will be eclipsed by COVID-19, and the lack of a face-to-face presence on our Durham campus.

If your project is being featured, make sure everyone has filled out the Waiver!!
