For over 35 years, the Wyoming Humanities Council has served as a catalyst for Wyoming’s collective imagination, bringing ideas to life for hundreds of organizations and thousands of people. An independent nonprofit organization, the Wyoming Humanities Council provides programs and grant opportunities to nonprofit organizations and government agencies throughout Wyoming. The council promotes understanding, appreciation, and cultivation of the humanities through community forums, film and reading discussions, teacher institutes, exhibits, publications, lectures, and whatever else we can think of. A partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the council works on national, regional and state levels. Visit our website! Bring us your own ideas from your community!
Communications Coordinator Jenn Koiter manages this blog and writes a fair number of the posts. As long as she can remember, Jenn’s great humanities loves have been literature and mythology. Her “official” humanities training began at Northwestern University, where she majored in English/Writing and Religion. She then took a master’s degree at the University of Chicago, writing about the Mahabharata, the great Hindu epic. She adores mod fashion and certain elements of mid-century modern design. She likes cats, but is deathly allergic. She writes poems, and sometimes people publish them. She wears a lot of purple. She occasionally teaches for Religious Studies at the University of Wyoming.
If you know of an upcoming humanities-related event anywhere in Wyoming, we’d love to help you publicize it! Please contact Jenn at jkoiter(at)uwyo(dot)edu.
