Real readings 

Have you listened to a good book lately? Hearing an author reading their own words brings a book to life with an extra special listening appeal. How about spending some time with Faulkner, Tolkien, O’Connor, or Joyce?

Cheers to us

From across the country and around the world, Chris Hensey's Virtual Wine Tastings have taken us straight to the winemakers themselves and are becoming quite a phenomenon. According to Ohio's largest Wine Distributor, our last tasting was the most successful event of its kind in Ohio. YOU have made this happen with your enthusiastic participation. The next Virtual Wine Tasting is on Saturday, June 13th at 5:30. We will be tasting wines from Sean Minor Winery in California.

Got two minutes?

Recorded by faculty in social isolation, these two-minute talks connect ongoing humanities research to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we adjust to new contexts for teaching, thinking, and writing, Laptop Lectures offer perspective on human experience in exceptional times. 
Check out today's Laptop Lecture, by Michael Hicks, which considers how remote learning challenges faculty and students to find a sense of social community.
