The Maine Humanities Council is calling for nominations for the 2022 Constance H. Carlson Public Humanities Prize!This prize, named for Dr. Constance H. Carlson, the first female president of a public university in Maine (UMaine Presque Isle), celebrates how people in Maine have contributed to the public humanities—by going deep within their communities and regions, or by reaching the whole state. This prize will go to a Maine resident involved in public humanities* who is using humanities resources to:
- foster agency, connection and engagement to communities in Maine;
- emphasize and/or increase diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and justice in Maine; and
- focus on representing or engaging with communities who have the least access to humanities resources.
