An anonymous donor has given Yale University $50 million to create a central physical home for the humanities on the campus. It appears from Yale's announcement that most of the funds would go to renovating the Hall of Graduate Studies to bring the various humanities-focused departments and centers at Yale together in one place, to "sustain an environment in which each department can retain its own identity and do its best work." The gift will also endow a fund to spur programming in the humanities, including lectures, courses, workshops and conferences.
