Featuring IUB Provost Lauren Robel, Professor Sara Guyer (Wisconsin), and Associate Professor Jason Kelley (IUPUI). What does research in the arts and humanities contribute to civic life in our society? The release of the AAAS Report of the Humanities and Social Sciences this past summer, IUB’s own ongoing reflection for its Strategic Plan, and the active national dialogue about the values and contributions of humanities scholarship and artistic practice—all make this a very timely event. The Roundtable will be structured to allow for generous conversation.

Co-sponsored by the IU College of Arts and Humanities Institute.
