The Center for the Humanities at Grinnell College cosponsors events across campus, supports community organizations, puts on a slate of programming each year around an annual theme, sponsors curricular offerings related to the center's activities, and supports faculty and staff work with our grant programs.
Theme 2019-20: Dis/Unity and Difference
Difference is a reality of community life — as is disagreement about how to negotiate the tensions of celebrating difference and promoting unity. Does focusing on unity paper over difference? Does focusing on difference promote disunity, undermining the possibility of solidarity? In 2019-20, the Center for the Humanities will host a variety of guests who will present topics and approaches that can help us think through these pressing questions in our communities.
