Citizens, Scholars and the Humanities: An Introduction to State Humanities Programs. Federation Resources 1.
Weiland, Steven, Ed.
This collection of essays seeks to offer a composite portrait of state humanities programs from a wide range of viewpoints. Topics explored include: the role of the National Endowment for the Humanities; the importance of the humanities; origins and new directions for state programs; humanities and the issues of public policy, the arts, science, and the social sciences; the use of the media in state humanities programs; political ramifications in the areas of funding and accountability; and the difficulties that threaten the continuation of state humanities programs. A listing of state humanities councils is included in the appendix. The various authors stress that the values and wisdom promoted by the humanities make the development of state programs invaluable.
