Speakers: Rachel Arteaga, Univ. of Washington, Seattle; Peter Brooks, Princeton Univ.; Cathy N. Davidson, Graduate Center, City Univ. of New York; Scott Krawczyk, United States Military Acad.; Jennifer Nichols, FrameWorks Inst.

What is the value of the humanities out in the world? Panelists articulate the transferable values, skills, and attributes acquired through advanced training in the humanities. They also investigate how we can go beyond the “outreach” of the “public humanities” to what we might call “inreach”—the direct influence of humanist PhDs working in business and government.
