Humanities Conversations

February 22, 2018 4:00 pm - February 22, 2018 5:00 pm

Humanities Conversations returns on Thursday, February 22nd from 4:00-5:00pm in 301 Reynolda Hall with What We Talk About When We Talk About Curriculum: Disciplines, Contents, Methods, Purposes.” Come join your humanities colleagues in open conversation about what we value in and across our humanities curriculum, and what we want it to be going forward.
Two texts may serve as a basis for our conversation. Read one, both, or neither, and come converse with your colleagues. Chad Wellmon offers a long, informative historical review of curriculum reform, from the nineteenth century to the present. Wellmon will be our guest speaker at the Annual Faculty Seminar Spring Symposium (Thursday, May 3rd, 2:00-4:00pm).

Much shorter is this book review of E. O. Wilson’s recently published The Origins of Creativity, which seeks greater mutual interest between the sciences and the humanities.
