One of the things I have been working on for the past several months has been organizing the 2015 Virginia Humanities Conference, on the theme, “The Humanities and/in the Public Sphere.” This April, Marymount University will be hosting the conference on its Main Campus, and I am very happy to note that we have a wonderful lineup; our keynote speaker, who is also our annual Bisson Lecturer in the Humanities, will be Dr. Steven Lubar of Brown University; he’ll be speaking on museum studies and American culture in “The Curator Rules” (4:00pm, April 10, Reinsch Auditorium–everyone is welcome). We also have several wonderful panels on digital humanities, public writing, and more. Please encourage your students and colleagues to attend!
