Submitted by Ellen Palms on

Humanities Washington announces its first cohort of Public Humanities Fellows, who will plan and implement innovative programs for their communities with an emphasis on reaching under-served communities.  AES Lecturer Monica Cortés Viharo is among the cohort of four fellows, chosen by a statewide committee of humanities experts -- the first of its kind in Washington.

Dr. Cortés Viharo will develop curricula centering on democracy and civics to complement Humanities Washington’s Speakers Bureau and better serve K-12 students and teachers. These lessons will leverage the deep expertise already present within the Speakers Bureau, making knowledge accessible to a wider audience.
