About The Life of Ideas, Notions, and Concepts
A series consisting of two panels by UMaine Humanities professors and two lectures by visiting scholars curated by Fréderic Rondeau
Some ideas get old. Some revive after decades of turmoil. Some seem gone forever, and then come back. The decline and the renaissance of an idea, a word, tells us a lot about our society and values. Participants in The Life of Ideas will think about this phenomenon critically by addressing the lifespan of an array of theoretical concepts from humanities disciplines.
