NEW TEMPLATE

The humanities have always provided a forum and a language for continuing dialog, and a model for imaginative empathy. In an age of specialization, there is a more and more urgent need to discover how the parts relate to a sense of the whole. Humanities Washington takes that mandate seriously.
