As member of the Board “SC Humanities”, formerly known as the SC Humanities Council, I am often asked “what is that?” The question is easier than the answer as it is such a broad and inclusive endeavor so much falls under the heading.
According to our mission statement Humanities:
…. are history, literature, languages, linguistics, philosophy, ethics, comparative religion and anthropology, as well as historical, critical and theoretical approaches to the arts. They are how we understand ourselves and our world. They’re also how we communicate that understanding to others. The groups and individuals whose projects we embrace arrive at our doorstep from every conceivable point of origin. They are rural and urban, young and old, scholars and students of all colors, creeds and backgrounds, but they all have one thing in common. They’re thinkers. And they’re the kind of thinkers who want to do something with their thoughts … something of practical value … something that makes a difference.
The projects themselves are every bit as diverse as their creators and maybe more so. They reflect the entire spectrum of human experience: the orderly and chaotic, the sublime and ridiculous, the lofty and lowly and everything in between that makes us what we are.”
noun, plural humanities.
1. all human beings collectively; the human race; humankind.
