Overview

The Carleton Humanities Program is a three week program in which students develop and present interdisciplinary, guided research projects in History (including art historical topics), cartography, or literature and theater.

Students will acquire tools and techniques of research, interpretation, and presentation essential to achieve the goal of humanistic research: to understand with depth and complexity the nature of human thought, action, and expression.

Carleton College’s rich Library and Special Collections as well as the facilities at the new Weitz Center for Creativity will offer terrific contexts in which to study, debate, and discover. At the end of the seminar, participants will present their work in a multi-faceted mini-exhibition and performances of a piece from the body of Shakespeare’s Rome-inspired works.

Why Humanities? The Humanities cultivate our awareness of the many factors and forces that shape the actions and beliefs of individual or group through time.  Most of all, it strengthens our capacity to enter into the lives and thoughts of others so as to understand more fully, subtly, and sympathetically “what makes them tick,” a capacity that ultimately helps us be and do better in every aspect of our lives.
