South Carolina Humanities believes that the humanities are a vital tool for navigating periods of distress or uncertainty. As the public health crisis concerning COVID-19 continues to unfold, we plan to deliver emails and social media posts with public humanities projects that are accessible for those of us practicing social distancing.
Each weekly “Thinking in Place” email will present a theme and provide links to interesting and educational online content, a book recommendation, and fun snippets about South Carolina history and culture related to that theme.
The first “Thinking in Place” email launched on March 26 on the theme of Women’s History. Each email will be archived here; click on the title of the email to read it.
