This panel discussion will demystify the recent rhetoric on the plight of the humanities. As a result, we hope the program will shift the tone of the conversation from "decline" and "crisis" to one of celebration. In doing so, we will highlight the impact and accomplishments of the Humanities inside and outside the academy.  

The program will feature a lively discussion that expresses varied perspectives on the Humanities disciplines' local and national impact. The panel will feature a Humanities Council grantee, Nafisa Isa, Project Manager for Marketing and Events at Busboys and Poets and Founder of Kahani a cultural salon series in Washington, DC, as well as Esther Mackintosh, a national advocate for the advancement of the public humanities and President of the Federation of State Humanities Councils. 

Join us to engage in this important conversation that is getting major attention from the halls of the Academy to the chambers of Capitol Hill. You may find out that you are already benefiting from the Humanities!
