Upcoming Segments

 

February 22 — Honoring Lives of Those Lynched in Maryland

What purpose can be served by confronting our region’s racist past? How can documentation of tragedy foster empathy? Will Schwarz, documentary director and producer and director of Pennant Productions, answers these questions and talks about his work on The Maryland Lynching Memorial Project

March 1 — Feminist Art History and Linda Nochlin

In honor of Women’s History Month, each Humanities Connection segment in March will feature a woman in the art museum or art history world. Lael J. Ensor-Bennett kicks off the month by teaching us about one of the founders of feminist art history, Linda Nochlin. Ensor-Bennett is the Assistant Visual Resources Curator at Johns Hopkins University.

March 8 — The Great Mystery Show

“Who am I?” “Is there an afterlife?” Science, philosophy, religion, and art have converged to answer some of life’s biggest questions, many of which we still don’t have answers to.  The Great Mystery Show at the American Visionary Art Museum celebrates the unknown, the imagination and the search for answers. Rebecca Hoffberger, the museum’s founder and director, tells us more about the exhibit. 

  • “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
