Updates from NEH and ACLS

The National Humanities Alliance has just issued its June update. Several of the issues that are on the advocacy platform of the NHA and were presented to Congressional offices during Humanities Advocacy Day in March have moved forward, notably increases in funding for NHA and for the National Historical Public Records Commission.

The American Council of Learned Societies held its first meeting outside the U.S. when it met in Montreal, Canada May 10-12, 2007. The theme of the conference was "The Global Academy and the Geography of Ideas." The program highlights will be published on the ACLS site later this summer.
