Flyleaf Weekday Series: Humanities in Action

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:30 pm on Tuesday and Friday, repeating until November 12, 2019

The Humanities in Action series is our homage to the tradition of civic humanism. Renaissance civic humanists believe that knowledge could forage a moral community. Humanities in Action events honor this tradition by encouraging our audience to apply what they learn to their civic life. Come engage with contemporary and potentially controversial topics in a welcoming environment.
