The grand launch of the Center took place on Friday, October 12th, 4:00-6:00, in B002 JFSB. Our speaker was Geoffrey Galt Harpham, Director of the National Humanities Center. Professor Harpham literally wrote the book about the humanities; fittingly, his talk was entitled “Finding Ourselves: The Humanities as a Discipline.” Anybody who has read anything from Professor Harpham’s considerable body of work knows how engaging and interesting it is–hence his current position. A reception will follow his talk.
