Webinar: Between Two Bookshelves on the Humanities and Civic Culture

Join us on September 12 at 2:00 pm EDT for a Between Two Bookshelves webinar with Andrew Perrin, Ruel W. Tyson Professor of the Humanities and director of the University of North Carolina’s Institute for the Arts and Humanities. A sociologist, Dr. Perrin has a longstanding research interest in how engagement with the humanities contributes to civic engagement. His 2014 book, American Democracy: From Tocqueville to Town Halls to Twitter, argues that democracy is “first and foremost a matter of culture: the shared ideas, practices, and technologies that help individuals combine into publics and achieve representation.” The webinar will focus on Dr. Perrin’s recent work to establish empirical links between the humanities and civic engagement.

Invite your members and colleagues to participate: The Between Two Bookshelves series is open to all NHA member organizations and their members. We encourage you to share this invitation with your members and colleagues to help broaden the conversation.
