The Humanities Truck is available for more than just long-term projects and interested fellows! We also encourage faculty, students, and community partners to think of creative ways to use the truck for one-time events with a humanities focus which speak to our efforts to collect, reflect, exhibit, and preserve. Find out more about how smaller projects and one-time events have utilized the truck, and contact us with your ideas!
