Humanities teachers initiate the public into the human conversation in many ways. Access to the conversation begins with the study of language, its structures and features, and with the recognition that it is through language we perceive and experience the world. Literature, philosophy, art, music, and dance also are languages and have textured traditions and dialectical variations. Fluency in these languages helps us understand and articulate what it means to be human here and abroad, now and in generations past.
Voices in the Human Conversation is a lecture series sponsored by the College of Humanities to help others participate in this dialogue. The lecture series features College faculty members, their scholarly research, and their unique insights.
