About Humanities Month
Each year, faculty members in the College of Arts and Humanities will select a theme, and each department will present on that theme during a designated month. This year, the theme is “War Stories,” based on the collection of material collected by Department of History faculty and students over the course of the past four years.
The program this year is partially sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
