Flyleaf Weekday Series: Humanities in Action
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.
This spring we collaborate with the UNC/Duke Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) Program to highlight this interdisciplinary program’s faculty, who are exploring public issues in their research. For each contemporary challenge, we should ask: What is the ethical course of action? What political risks emerge in confronting it? What are the social and economic costs? Join us for 10 lectures on current controversies that demand ongoing dialogue.
Tuition: Advance registrants can take advantage of our special FLYLEAF SEASON PASS – register for all 9 events for $125.00 ($90.00 for GAA members). Register in advance for $18.00 ($13.00 for GAA Members). Each lecture is $20.00 at the door.
