With social distancing during the current pandemic, it’s more important than ever to find ways to connect with other humans in creative ways. The humanities offer a multitude of invigorating ideas that help us understand what makes us human.

Our staff has been working on ways for all Nebraskans to explore the humanities at home. Periodically, we offer a new list of books, films or activities that you and your loved ones can enjoy as you learn more about what it means to be human.
