Do you live in Chicago? Are you interested in the Humanities? Possibly even to the point of studying them for an entire year?

Boy, do we have the event for you!  The Chicago Humanities Festival.

This year, the Chicago Humanities Festival theme is Journeys and they have a truly incredible line up. Through their site, you can search for events and speaker, or search by your own interests. You can even download the program and look through the entire line-up. (I, for one, am excited about the Mark Bittman event as well as the Future of Higher Ed.) There are also musical performances, the CHF Parlor, and workshops.  » Read the rest of this entry «
