Oh, the Humanities!
The Summer 2012 issue of The Grinnell Magazine takes a look at humanities study at Grinnell — and its outcomes.
On the inside front cover, a very special student musing — written by a student in the College’s liberal arts in prison program — talks about how Grinnell faculty and students bring the liberal arts to those “inside the fences” at two correctional institutions in central Iowa.
“The Humanities Changed My Life” features alumni of varied majors and jobs talking about how the humanities inflected their lives and careers.
“The Enduring Strength of Humanities 101” profiles the course that founded the curriculum — and why it still resonates with students.
“Writing @ Grinnell” reveals how faculty writers plus visiting authors create transformational experiences for student writers.
“Where the Humanities Never Sleep” shows the breadth of cocurricular activities that enrich humanities inquiry at Grinnell.
All of the above — plus Commencement and Reunion news and much more — is coming to your mailbox in late June. Or, you can download The Grinnell Magazine Summer 2012 (PDF)
Either way, we hope you enjoy the read!
