One of the great traditions in the Messiah College School of the Humanities is the yearly Humanities Symposium. This year’s symposium runs from today, Feb. 22nd through Friday, Feb. 24th. Come out and check out some of the great sessions being offered. The Symposium offers a wonderful opportunity for learning and conversation outside of the classroom. You can check out all of the sessions being offered here, but I let me suggest a few that you, as a history major, may want to consider:
TODAY (Wed.): Welcome reception at 4:00pm in Boyer Atrium. (Free food!)
TODAY (Wed.): School of Humanities Dean Peter Powers will be delivering a lecture titled “Higher Education, Humanities, and the Wealth of Nations.” 4:30 in Boyer 131
THURSDAY: Keynote speaker Geoffrey Galt Harpham will present a lecture titled “Melancholy in the Midst of Abundance: How Americans Invented the Humanities.” 8pm in the new Calvin and Janet High Center for Worship and the Performing Arts
FRIDAY: Check out Dr. Wilson’s humanities students present a session titled “Wealth From the Perspective of the Humanities: ‘Some pretend to be rich, yet have nothing; others pretend to be poor, yet have great wealth” Proverbs 13:7″ 11:30-12;30 in Parmer Cinema.
I hope to see you at some of these events!
