Support from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council

A newly-awarded grant from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council will allow us to launch the Greater Philadelphia Roundtable, a series of public forums for dialogue that will help shape the contents of the Encyclopedia.  The first sessions of the roundtable, beginning in March, will respond to suggestions received on this web site and at our Civic Partnership and Planning Workshop last year.  See our Events calendar for details of the first three roundtables, and watch for an additional session that is being planned on African American history.  Each session will feature new research, lively discussion, and the opportunity to contribute ideas for Encyclopedia topics.
