“Ask an NEH Expert” Series

NHD Google+ Hangouts Series “Ask an NEH Expert” is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). NEH is an independent federal agency created in 1965. It is one of the largest funders of humanities programs in the United States. Because democracy demands wisdom, NEH serves and strengthens our republic by promoting excellence in the humanities and conveying the lessons of history to all Americans. The Endowment accomplishes this mission by awarding grants for top-rated proposals examined by panels of independent, external reviewers. NHD is one such recipient of NEH’s funding and support.

Below are some important resources and links from NEH that support the ideas and lessons found in the NHD Google+Hangout series:
