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.

“The new website has been designed to better serve the needs of the NYU community and external audiences by showcasing the depth and breadth of projects and the caliber of research at the university,” said Faculty Director Jane Tylus, a professor of Italian Studies and Comparative Literature.

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

About the Humanities Initiative:
