50th anniversary celebration for National Endowment for the Humanities
Loyola/Notre Dame | Website
This event occurred in the past.
Loyola University Maryland will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) with “Democracy and the Humanities,” a two-day symposium featuring lectures and presentations by renowned scholars from across the country. The event is part of an ongoing national conversation on the importance of the humanities in education and in America. Speakers and breakout session panelists will explore why the humanities were relevant when NEH was created in 1965 and why the humanities continue to be relevant, if not more so, today. Duke University President Richard Brodhead, Ph.D., and NEH Chairman William Adams, Ph.D., are among the symposium’s featured speakers, and individual session discussions will be led by scholars from public and private colleges and universities and representatives from national higher education organizations.
