Bro Adams, NEH Chairman, is coming to Chicago & we’ll be there!
We’re excited that Joseph Coulson, president of the Great Books Foundation, is among a small group of humanities leaders invited to participate in a Roundtable Discussion welcoming William “Bro” Adams, Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, to Chicago. This event, hosted by U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, will be held Friday, December 12th at the Jane Addams Hull House.
Chairman Adams will speak about his vision for the agency—including the launch of a new NEH initiative, The Common Good: Humanities in the Public Square. In addition, Coulson and the other roundtable participants will have an opportunity to share the work of their institutions with Adams and each other.
“It’s a privilege to discuss the future of the humanities with the new Chairman,” says Coulson. “Great Books stands for literacy because literacy serves the common good.”
