Are university degrees in the humanities really less valuable than degrees in the sciences and technology (STEM) fields?
The Humanities and STEM fields will be the subject of a roundtable held:
Monday, March 25, 2013
Smathers Library (East) Room 1-A
The panel and audience discussion will explore the relationship of research inquiry and teaching in the humanities disciplines and STEM. Participants will discuss how advances in history, literature, and philosophy inform and are informed by work in computer engineering, biomedicine, neuroscience, and mathematics. Following five ten-minute presentations, a question and answer period will allow for a broader discussion of these issues.
