Chicago Humanities Summit at 2014 Convention
The MLA, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Chicago Humanities Festival are sponsoring a humanities summit, which will be held on Thursday, 9 January, from 9:00 a.m. to noon at the Gratz Center at Fourth Presbyterian Church in downtown Chicago. The event will expand on the conversation started by The Heart of the Matter, the official report from the AAAS’s Commission on the Humanities and Social Sciences, and will center on a series of concurrent how-to sessions. Facilitated by leading humanities scholars, the sessions will showcase and workshop innovative programs, projects, and initiatives that take the humanities well beyond the academy. More information and a registration form are available here.
