Are you interested in promoting and supporting conversations about great works and ideas? If yes, we encourage you to attend the inaugural conference of the Alliance for Liberal Learning (ALL) on November 6 and 7 in downtown Chicago’s historic Jeweler’s Building, also home to the Great Books Foundation. In keeping with the theme of this year’s Chicago Humanities Festival, “Citizens”, the Great Books Foundation will donate complimentary copies of our publication Citizens of the World: Readings in Human Rights (expanded edition), to all attendees of the conference.
Keynote speakers are Christopher B. Nelson, president of St. John’s College Annapolis, Todd Breyfogle, director of seminars, The Aspen Institute, and Eva Brann, tutor, St. John’s College Annapolis.
Great Books president Joseph P. Coulson, Ph.D., will participate in two panel discussions on Saturday, November 7—“Getting the Word Out: Writing, Speaking and Influencing the Public View of Liberal Learning” and “Expanding the Audience: Great Books Outside the Traditional Seminar Room.”
Two other Great Books staff members will also be involved: Denise Ahlquist will participate in the “Quantifying the Value of Liberal Learning: Assessing the Immeasurable?” panel on Friday, November 6, and John Riley will join the “Understanding the Market for Lifelong Liberal Learning” panel on Saturday, November 7.
