Robert Hemenway, KU's sixteenth chancellor, spoke on "Humanities and American Politics."

"The humanities today are being debated in the public arena as never before, and the implications of the political dialogue have profound effects for the university and for American society," said Hemenway. "We need to think more clearly about our definitions of politics and the humanities, understand more broadly the history of such encounters, act more responsibly as we exercise our political and intellectual freedom in such debates and trust more confidently in the personal satisfaction we draw from humanistic study."
