Conversations to open Humanities Week

Free public events Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 11 and 12, will kick off Humanities Week.

First up, recent graduates of programs in humanities will offer “Advice from the Real World” at 1 p.m. Monday in the Leddy Library’s first floor Collaboratory. Speakers will describe their challenging and engaging careers, and talk with the current students about what to expect after finishing their degrees.

On Tuesday, law professor Richard Moon will explore the growing incidence and severity of campus disputes over expression in his lecture “The invented crisis: Universities and the demise of free speech.” His presentation will begin at 6 p.m. in the Performance Hall, SoCA Armouries, 37 University Ave. East.
