The WIIH at the 2016 Celebration of the Humanities

unnamed-1

On Thursday, October 6, WIIH co-director Professor Montserrat Pérez Toribio along with two current Wheaton students Gavriel Cohn and Pia Parisi-Marcoux attended the 2016 Celebration of the Humanities presented by the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities. This council promotes public understanding and appreciation of the tradition of thought and accomplishment that we call the humanities. Its work is based on the conviction that history, literature, philosophy, theology, civics, the arts and other fields of the humanities are central not only to formal education, but to the daily lives of a free and diverse people. Professors Shawn Christian and Touba Ghadessi are both board members of the Council.
