Democracy and the Informed Citizenry

Exploring the role the humanities and journalism play in a healthy democracy.

Democracy and the Informed Citizenry

Through the Democracy and the Informed Citizenry initiative, the Vermont Humanities Council seeks to deepen Vermonters’ knowledge and appreciation of the connections between the humanities, an informed citizenry, and journalism. The initiative will explore the role that each of these crucial areas plays in a healthy democracy.

This program is part of the “Democracy and the Informed Citizen” Initiative, administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils. The initiative seeks to deepen the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the vital connections between democracy, the humanities, journalism, and an informed citizenry.

We thank The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership.

This special initiative will conclude in the spring of 2019 and includes several programs. Please check back for more details as they become available.
