  • A Time to Listen and a Time to Speak Out

    09/01/2020

    If the turbulence of 2020 has proven anything, it is the vital importance of humanistic study. Whether we are deciding whom to honor in our public spaces, considering how to recompense for human suffering, or weighing facts against conspiracy theory, we need humanistic skills and perspectives.  

    This year is a time for reflection and action. While we are proud of so much ACLS has achieved over the past century, we like other institutions are also heeding the call for healthy self-examination. We are committed to ensuring that our fellowship programs, advocacy, and policy work grow out of principles of equity and inclusive excellence as well as our belief in the essential value of humanistic scholarship.
