  • And more…

This event is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Lehigh Valley Engaged Humanities Consortium. 

Generously funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation through June 2021, the Lehigh Valley Engaged Humanities Consortium (LVEHC) fosters exploration of personal, historical, and community narratives that have emerged in the past half-century in the region using methods of the humanities and arts. Guided by a steering committee composed of representatives of a dozen Lehigh Valley academic and cultural institutions, the LVEHC proposes to bring the region’s diversity and sense of place to light, concentrate on the changing nature of the work its residents do, and consider the role of storymaking in documenting the changes that have taken place.
