Join us on Sunday, November 3, at 4 p.m. for the 2013 Adams Lecture with Professor H. Holden Thorp, newly appointed Provost of Washington University in St. Louis. Stay tuned for more details regarding the lecture.

The Adams Lecture is named for E. Maynard Adams, who was Kenan Professor of Philosophy at UNC Chapel Hill. Professor Adams (1919-2003) played a key role in the creation of the UNC Humanities Program and was an eloquent spokesman for the role of the humanities and human values in contemporary education and culture. This annual lecture features outstanding faculty from the UNC College of Arts and Sciences.
