HINDSIGHT / 2020: Humanistic Reflections on an Unprecedented Year
The Humanities Institute in the College of Arts and Sciences presents a series of online lectures and conversations that highlight the ways in which humanistic disciplines can help us interpret and contextualize the critical developments in racialized violence, public health, and social responsibility that have defined, and often intersected in, an unprecedented 2020. The year-long series will additionally focus on how the humanities can collaborate with other disciplines to help us better understand these pressing issues. These online events, free and open to the public through the “Quick Sessions” Platform of the Regina A. Quick Center for Performing Arts, will feature prominent national and international figures in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences as well as Fairfield University faculty.
