Based on its research on how the humanities are discussed in public media and other sources, the WE1S project makes recommendations for how different groups can put our research into action by engaging with the humanities.

WE1S presents its recommendations starting with Call-to-Action and Call-for-Communication “cards”–that is, short, everyday-language recommendations or provocations like those used by some U.S. state Humanities Councils to spark public engagement with the humanities. These cards combine with WE1S’s similarly introductory research “cards” reporting on its underlying collections, methods, tools, and findings in Research-to-Action Toolkits suggesting how particular audiences (such as students, educators, journalists, community leaders, or legislators) can use our research on the humanities.

WE1S’s cards are just the tip of the iceberg in reporting research. Resources cited in the cards lead to fuller research or recommendations in the background, including both that by others and by WE1S itself (WE1S research blog posts, reports, white papers, talks, and articles).
