Smith, James P., Ed.; Weiland, Steven, Ed.
Six essays exploring the uses of the humanities in public programs are presented. They relate to the traditional and current interests of the disciplines, and discuss matters that bear on the conduct of projects and the activities of participating humanists in state programs. They are the result of a study of the concepts and practices in the academic disciplines that can promote an effective "public pedagogy" in the humanities. The essays include: The Rebirth of Civic Culture through the Humanities: The Danish Experience (R. Oakley Winters); The Public Study of Literature (Alan Shusterman); Philosophic Tradition, Rediscovery and the Public (Fred Weber); Doing History in Public Places (Michael Sherman); Scholarship in the Humanities and the Public: The Case of Literature (Richard Lewis); Lively Wonder or Tangled Web? New Thoughts about Adult Learning (Charles C. Cole); and Pearls and Rubies to Their Discourse: Academic Rewards for American Scholars (Steven Weiland). Appended is a gazette of the contributors.
