Humanities events recap

Similar to how the world was grieving and in shock after 9/11, many of the public records after Lincoln's death presented a nation in mourning, Hodes said, but individual feelings and reactions varied. 

And religion professor Derrick Lemons recently hosted the mini-conference "Theologically-Engaged Anthropology:"

Along with Lemons, the scholars met Sept. 20-22 in Atlanta to discuss what theology could contribute to cultural anthropology and ethnography. Everyone wrote a paper addressing the topic, and each paper was discussed at length. These papers, along with the works from the second conference in February in England, will be combined and published in an edited book.

Engagement with who we are that reaches into the community and brings in the world. The humanities are the bedrock of our civilization. As we cultivate them, we cultivate ourselves. Congratulations and thanks to the people and units who sponsor, organize and produce these events - they enrich our campus community and strengthen our culture.
