Dr. Elizabeth Ewan at CommUnity Conversation on the Humanities
University Research Chair and Scottish History scholar Dr. Elizabeth Ewan will appear at the CommUnity Conversation on the Humanities this April 22.
from @Guelph: Five of Canada’s leading humanities researchers – all holders of prestigious University Research Chairs at the University of Guelph – will take part in a free “CommUnity Conversation” April 22 on the role of the humanities in culture and community. The timing could not be better, organizers say. Almost every day brings newspaper columns, radio programs, debates or discussions about the “value” of a university education, especially degrees in the arts and humanities, say professors Sky Gilbert and Robert Enright. More and more, researchers are being asked to demonstrate how their work will add “value” to society, usually through commercialization. Read the rest of the story @Guelph. Get the event flyer: .pdf
