Fall 2023 Topic: The Power of the Humanities

The study of humanities allows us to better understand the world we live in, its diverse peoples and cultures, the ways in which the past informs the present, and the human experience as individuals and in collectivities. 

How has a particular humanities course, humanities project, or humanities book inspired or challenged you? How has it influenced you to think differently? How has it provided understanding or solace? How has it promoted solidarity and ignited your imagination?

We invite you to write a short blog post (500-750 words) on this topic. We strongly encourage the use of visual images, hyperlinks, and/or short embedded audio or video along with text. 

Please share your blog post with Michelle Burnham and Amy Randall as a shared google doc along with your name, a photo, and a link to your SCU or professional webpage.
