UCA to host Humanities Fair

UCA’s Humanities and World Cultures Institute will host the Fall 2008 Humanities Fair this Wednesday, Nov. 6, the Brewer-Hegeman Conference Center and Ida Waldran Auditorium at UCA. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m., with programs from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The Humanities Fair, supported in part by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council, is open to high school students and their teachers. Its purpose is to deepen students’ understanding and appreciation of the humanities by enabling them to experience a typical day attending university humanities courses. Students may attend sessions conducted by UCA professors in Philosophy, Religious Studies, History, English, Anthropology, African and African American Studies, Asian Studies, and Gender Studies.
