La Busqueda, The Search

Renovation of a donated property as home for La Búsqueda (The Search), a Southwest focused humanities institute, as well as an endowment for its activities.

The Southwest Center at the University of Arizona requests a $500K NEH Challenge Grant to create and support a Southwest-focused humanities institute: La Búsqueda (The Search). La Búsqueda will be a physical and intellectual space where scholars, the community and students convene for thoughtful critical inquiry and discourse, emphasizing the role of the humanities in illuminating society’s humanistic grand challenges. The grant will help fund a $1.25M endowment to support visiting scholars and the dissemination of scholarship and challenge solutions through public outreach programming such as lectures, readings and salons and publication of special issues of the Journal of the Southwest and monographs in the Southwest Center Series. Grand challenge themes in alignment with NEH’s The Common Good frame La Búsqueda’s first three years of programming.
