March 23: Value of an Education in the Humanities

Students who study the humanities as part of a well-rounded liberal arts education explore questions fundamental to the human existence. Who are we? Where have we been? Students develop the skills to prepare them for their careers and a civically engaged life.  Dr. Scott Casper, Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences and Professor of History at UMBC, tells us more.

March 30: The Way We Worked in Kent County

How has the labor force changed in Maryland throughout the years?  We’re bringing a new Smithsonian traveling exhibition, The Way We Worked, to five communities in Maryland this year and companion exhibitions will uncover the unique history of work in our state.  Ms. Nina Johnson, Executive Director of Sumner Hall in Chestertown, tells us about the history of work in Kent County and the focus of the companion exhibit on this second stop of the tour.

  • “It is difficult to properly express our gratitude to Maryland Humanities for the help and support that we received through the grant-making process and through the project…The support of (Maryland Humanities) was not in funding alone. By including a spot about the initiative in (their) Humanities Connection program on WYPR, Maryland Humanities did much to help promote our initiative and alert the general public about the program that we were running in the early months of the fall.”

    Dr. Kimberly Coles ~ Chair, Education and Citizenship Project Committee, University of Maryland College Park
