MPBN Series Focusing on the Humanities

Beginning Aug. 10, Maine Public Broadcasting Network’s “Morning Edition” is featuring a series of interviews focused on the humanities. Taking part in the MPBN series every Monday morning for five consecutive weeks will be Kirsten Jacobson on philosophy, Michael Grillo on art history, Desiree Butterfield-Nagy on the digital humanities, and Patty Counihan on the career benefits of being a humanities major, all of the University of Maine, as well as Anna Sims Bartel of Cornell University on how policy can be improved by the humanities. All of the guests wrote articles in the special issue of Maine Policy Review earlier this year on the humanities and policy, produced by the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center in cooperation with the UMaine Humanities Center.
