Ideas Matter - The Humanities In The 21st Century

Feb 13, 2015

We are very happy to continue our regular feature – Ideas Matter: Checking in with the Public Humanities. Today’s we’ll be thinking about how to engage the public with the humanities in this young century by taking a bird's eye view of the state of the public humanities by talking with Sara Ogger and Michael Frisch on the history of the field, its current state, and new initiatives to engage the broader public with the humanities.

Our guests are Sara Ogger, the Executive Director of the New York Council for the Humanities, and Mike Frisch, Professor of History and American Studies at SUNY Buffalo.
