This year the National Endowment for the Humanities announced a new program for public humanities scholars.

Looking Back at the Past Year

In sharing some reflections on the year, I’ll begin with how it ended — with phrases from Commencement still ringing in my head.

Summer @Wesleyan

In some ways the summertime on campus is calm.

One of the most stirring speeches I know was given by Frederick Douglass for Independence Day: “What to the Slave is the 4th of July.”

Last week was full of conference talks for me. I’m not really a fan of these sorts of meetings, but I was asked to speak on liberal education at Aspen and Cambridge and thought I’d take the opportunity to wave the flag.

Wounding Us All

The heinous attack in a Charleston, South Carolina church last night wounds us all.

One of the great community assets in central Connecticut based at Wesleyan is our radio station, WESU 88.1.

It was great to see so many alumni back over the Memorial Day Weekend.

What a glorious morning for R&C Weekend!
