Across the Humanities

intro picLast week CHAT concluded its speaker series with a spectacular presentation by Temple Professor James Earl Davis from Temple's College of Education. But the Humanities at Temple are still going strong heading into the final week of the semester. This Friday and Saturday Temple will host an international conference on Nietsche and the Birth of Tragedy. This event will be held at Temple's Center City campus featuring nationally and internationally recognized Nietsche specialists. It is a collaboration between Temple's philosophy department (Kristin Gjesdal) and the University of Bonn in Germany. The talks are open to the public. For a complete program see here.
