Activism and the Humanities
March 17 | 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm EDTFree
Underpinning the liberal arts is the belief that higher education is preparation for life as a responsible, actively engaged citizen. Does this mean there is a natural connection between the humanities and activism, or is it that higher education points the way to something more focused? What might such activism look like? Join us for a discussion with NYU faculty on Activism and the Humanities.
