Brendan Kane Receives Grant to Foster Democracy & Dialogue Initiative

Brendan Kane, Associate Professor of History and Associate Director of the Humanities Institute at the University of Connecticut

UConn History Professor Brendan Kane, working with Assistant Professor of Human Rights and Education Glenn Mitoma, aided CT Humanities in winning a $50,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Kane and Mitoma are co-directors of the Democracy & Dialogues Initiative (D&DI) and this Mellon grant will fund further D&DI programming. The initiative presents programming designed to provide frameworks for meaningful discussion around often difficult and divisive topics, instruction on civic processes and participation, and avenues that ensure access for all citizens to value and participate fully in our democracy.
