Moral Psychology and Education: Putting the Humanities to Work
A National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute
May 30 – June 24, 2016 (4 weeks)
Several recent philosophers have emphasized the importance of the humanities for civic engagement, a flourishing democracy, and a globalized world. This four-week Summer Institute for College and University Teachers at Grand Valley State University from May 30 to June 24, 2016 extends discussion beyond the public function of the humanities to an intensive examination of the moral psychology behind effective moral education. Guided by 17 faculty from a variety of fields, participants will develop teaching and research projects. Application deadline is March 1, 2016 at 11:59 pm.
