What: Phi Beta Kappa’s annual Allen Going Lecture titled “The Past and the Future of the Humanities.”

Who: James Turner will give the lecture. Turner previously taught in the Department of History at the University of Notre Dame.

When: Monday, Oct. 30. 3:30-5 p.m.

Where: Gorgas Library, Room 205.

Why: Margaret Abruzzo, associate professor of history at the University and a member of Phi Beta Kappa, emphasized the importance of thinking beyond your own academic discipline and about the interconnectedness the humanities lend. 

“The humanities are so important for getting people to think about the big questions in life and to think about what it means to be human, partly to just kind of break out from the narrow intellectual worlds we sometimes live in,” Abruzzo said. “We get so focused on our own disciplines or major that we don’t always think about how what we’re studying in one field can have a relationship with another; [the lecture is] a good way to have all those disciplines in one room and to kind of connect the dots.”
