Ideas Matter: Clemente Course In The Humanities
In our Ideas Matter segment we take time just about every week to check in with the state humanities councils in our 7-state region.
Today, we will learn about the Clemente Course in the Humanities, which is a program that offers free, college-level seminars in literature, US history, moral philosophy, art history, and writing to adults living in poverty. The Clemente Course has been offered in ten states - including Massachusetts and New York, as well as in Canada, and Mexico.
We are joined today by Ousmane Power-Greene, Associate Professor of History at Clark University and Instructor of US History at the Clemente Course in Springfield, Massachusetts, and Worcester, Massachusetts, and David Tebaldi, Executive Director of Mass Humanities.
