The Humanities in Our Lives

Back to publications

Building on the success of an earlier infographic under the Humanities in Our Lives banner, the Indicators developed an expanded series of one-pagers that couple data about the humanities with profiles of innovative programs in the field. The series, created with funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, reflects the Indicators’ holistic view of the humanities, and demonstrates the wide range of subject areas across which Indicators data can be brought to bear. We hope these examples can demonstrate how Indicators data can be used across an array of subject areas.
