A Guide to Getting (Really) Educated…
But HOW can we do this? What are the resources to help? And where can we begin?
Join us on May 12th, NOON EDT for a conversation on Classics Outside the Classroom with Dr. James Hankins of Harvard University, Anya Leonard of Classical Wisdom, and Alexandra Hudson of Civic Renaissance.
As mainstream educational institutions move away from a classical core in the liberal arts, it can be tempting to feel despondent about the future of this educational model that has educated men and women for millenia.
Yet there are a growing number of organizations around the world committed to remedy this. These non-accrediting institutions are nourishing those who care about ideas and the wisdom of the past and are offering people a chance to engage in the ideas of the Great Conversation.
What can we learn from these initiatives? How can we promote more of them? How can these new organizations nurture and grow the values of curiosity and lifelong learning?
All registrations made in advance will receive a recording of the event afterwards, even if they are unable to attend.
The event will take place on Wednesday, May 12th at NOON EDT.
