New NEH grant for a humanities hub

Professors Nicoletta Pireddu (Inaugural Director of the Georgetown Humanities Initiative), and Derek Goldman and Anthony R DelDonna (Department of Performing Arts) have been awarded a $750,000 grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities to create a humanities hub. As the PIs explain, the funding will help expand humanities research, pedagogy, and public programming through renovations to the McNeir Auditorium and the lobby of the Davis Performing Arts Center.
