logoThe Whiting Foundation has announced a $150,000 grant to The New School’s Humanities Action Lab (HAL), an interdisciplinary hub that brings together 20 universities from across the country with global partners and community organizations to foster public engagement on urgent social problems.

The funds will bolster the lab’s current project: Global Dialogues on Incarceration, a project and curriculum that applies humanities perspectives to questions of crime and punishment at 20 universities, through which students and community partners create a corresponding exhibition, online platform for public dialogue and series of public programs. The exhibition will open at The New School in April 2016 and, over the next three years, travel to each of the project’s participating universities.
