Graziella Parati Speaks in Defense of the Liberal Arts

"The humanities were dominating the curriculum in the past. Scientists were coming to science from the humanities," Professor Graziella Parati says in an interview on NPR . "The creation of knowledge is not made by studying one particular thing, but by studying, across the board, as many things as possible." The interview with Professor Parati, Director of the Leslie Center for the Humanities, Paganucci Chair of Italian Studies and Professor of Italian, Comparative Literature and Women and Gender Studies, aired on NPR on August 14, 2018.  To listen to the full interview, click here.
