IAS Public Lecture - What Is the Value of the Humanities? How We Read (and Write) Today

Wednesday December 4, 2019
6:30 PM

Our research environments are hushed. But there is a case to be made for returning to the realm of the embodied voice—and what better time to make it than right now, when we are reaching out toward a more expansive, global literature?
