Mills Kelly, Professor of History at George Mason University, will challenge the audience to think about what the humanities curriculum will look like ten years hence. How will advances in digital media change the ways that students learn about and make sense of the humanities, and how should humanities departments begin changing their curricula to prepare students for advanced thinking about the big ideas in the humanities?
