HistPhil‘s forum on education and philanthropy will be wrapping up in the next few weeks, but we have some exciting plans for the months ahead that we’d like to share with you–and would love your help with. First, we’ll be hosting a forum on the split between philanthropy and charity, featuring posts from Jeremy Beer, author of The Philanthropic Revolution: An Alternative History of American Charity, and Emma Saunders-Hastings. We are also working on a forum on the Green Revolution, the philanthropic initiative in which there is likely the greatest gap between the way in which it is understood and studied by academics and by practitioners. We’ll be hearing from both in this forum. Lastly, we are planning a virtual symposium on Patricia Rosenfield’s new book on the history of the Carnegie Corporation’s international philanthropy, A World of Giving.
If you would like to contribute to any of these–or if you have ideas of who else might like to–please do let us know. And, of course, if you’d like to contribute a post that isn’t on one of these topics, we still welcome those as well.
Thanks for all your support,
– Maribel and Benjamin
