ACLS creates space for much-needed conversations about current issues in academia, uplifts humanistic scholarship, and connects our communities through events, publications, scholarly resource lists, and public programs. Across the globe, ACLS President Joy Connolly and ACLS staff participate in a wide range of panels, conferences, and speaking engagements to further advance the ACLS mission to audiences beyond our community.

Through grantmaking and convening, ACLS encourages inquiry and various ways to share its fruits – specialized and publicly accessible, individually and collaboratively produced, appearing in the pages of books and in digital archives. We proudly celebrate all of those dedicated to advancing and sharing humanistic knowledge, even in the most challenging circumstances.
