The Oregon Council for the Humanities is pleased to announce our online
catalog of programs for the 200910 Conversation Project: A New Chautauqua.
Oregon nonprofits may sign up for programs starting August 1, 2009, for
programs beginning November 1, 2009.
The catalog, instructions for host organizations, and downloadable
application form are available at www.oregonhumanities.org.
The 200910 Conversation Project lineup features seventeen programs
presented by sixteen scholars from around the state. This season¹s programs
span diverse topics, including friendship, the future of rural communities,
media literacy, and reimagining the American prison system. Scholars hail
from Ashland, Corvallis, McMinnville, Portland, and Salem.
Much like the current Oregon Chautauqua program, which runs through August
2009, the overarching goal of the Conversation Project will be to offer
statewide opportunities for civic dialogue and humanities learning, but with
a greater emphasis on contemporary issues through interactive, facilitated
conversations rather than traditional scholar presentations.
For more information, please contact Program Coordinator Annie Dubinsky at
(503) 241-0543, ext. 116, or adubinsky at oregonhumanities.org.
