Humanities Institute internal logo

 

On Saturday, March 22, 2014 the WFU Humanities Institute will host a Faculty “Supposium” from 10am-3pm at the Reynolda House Museum of American Art.

The event is in lieu of the Humanities Institute’s usual spring symposium and provides times away for WFU faculty working in and with the humanities to think broadly about the humanities’ pasts and futures and to consider what else the Humanities Institute might accomplish through interdisciplinary collaborations and innovative engagement in the humanities.

Join us for great conversation on topics generated by faculty, a humanities digital/multi-media SLAM, information on upcoming opportunities at RHMAA, good food, and more! All faculty working in and with the humanities are welcome!
