This fall, Princeton University is bringing the international “Being Human: A Festival of the Humanities” to diverse audiences across New Jersey.

In fall 2018, the University became the first U.S. institution to join the annual festival, which originates in the U.K. In 2019, Princeton’s programming for “Being Human” offers over 20 events in the humanities on and off campus through experiential activities including performances, tours and workshops. Coordinated by the Humanities Council in partnership with the Program for Community-Engaged Scholarship (ProCES)⁠, the celebration runs through Dec. 19.
