Abstract: Stuart Parnes, Executive Director of CT Humanities, makes the following mention of the Hartford Heritage Project in his editorial on "place-making" in CT: "In one example close to home, the Hartford Heritage Project, a program at Capital Community College supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, makes the city of Hartford an extension of the classroom.
