The Humanities Initiative at NYU has launched a redesigned web site that features videos showcasing research in the field, information on fellowships and other funding opportunities, event listings, and more.

The redesign of the site, humanitiesinitiative.org, coincides with the Initiative’s celebration of its seventh year supporting humanities research at NYU.

Features of the new website include:

• Video interviews of students and faculty sharing stories of their research projects in the humanities
• An inside look at the Leadership Alliance Mellon Initiative (LAMI) summer program through video interviews and research project presentations
• Optimized viewing experience for desktops, tablets and mobile devices
• A library of links to local and global humanities resources, institutes, and organizations
• Online applications for 2014-2015 award competitions including Faculty Research Fellowships, Graduate Student Research Fellowships, Team-Teaching Stipends, Research Project Team Stipends, and Grants-in-Aid
• A calendar of events organized by the Humanities Initiative
