Subject: Other Audience: All

The Massachusetts Governor’s Awards in the Humanities recognize those whose actions and decision-making are grounded in an appreciation for and understanding of the humanities. Award recipients realize the centrality of the humanities to our national identity and ethic, and they have championed the value of those disciplines throughout their various careers.

In addition to highlighting the important role of the public humanities in our society, the goal of the awards is to inspire leaders and institutions to advance the values expressed in the mission of Mass Humanities. The Governor’s Awards are presented at the Mass Humanities annual benefit dinner.
