The UMBC Dresher Center Humanities Forum offers a program of events that illustrate the richness of contemporary work in philosophy, history, culture, language, literature and the arts. The Forum showcases the many connections that bring together the humanities, the social sciences and the sciences.
The Humanities and Civic Engagement
In 2014-15, the Humanities Forum will highlight “The Humanities and Civic Engagement.” Many of the Forum events address matters of identity and civic belonging, questions of morality and honor in public life, and issues of human rights in an age of globalization. These events shine a light on ways that humanities research and teaching promote civic citizenship and social engagement.
