Humanities Commons Participating Organizations

Humanities Commons is made possible by the contributions of its participating organizations. In return for their financial support, HC grants these organizations the ability to host networks dedicated to their communities and invites them to help shape the future of the platform through its governance processes.

If you find the Commons valuable, encourage your scholarly societies and other organizations and institutions to join us!
