【讲座内容简介】
Why Liberal Education Matters
Historian, curator and author Michael Roth, President of Wesleyan University
will argue for an approach to liberal learning that integrates the arts, huma
nities and social sciences with the sciences, touching on current debates abo
ut the continued value of a broadly based education, as well as how such an e
ducation has been perceived historically in the United States.

【演讲者Michael S. Roth简介】
Michael S. Roth '78 became the 16th president of Wesleyan University in 2007.

In 1996, Roth moved from Scripps College, where he was Hartley Burr Alexander
Professor of Humanities and founding director of the Scripps College Humanit
ies Institute, to join the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles, becoming
associate director in 1997. In 2000, he became president of the California Co
llege of the Arts.
Author and curator (most notably of the exhibition “Sigmund Freud: Conflict
and Culture,” which opened at the Library of Congress in 1998), Roth describ
es his scholarly interests as centered on “how people make sense of the past
.” His fifth book, Memory, Trauma and History: Essays on Living with the Pas
t was published this year by Columbia University Press, and he is preparing h
is next book, Why Liberal Education Matters for Yale University Press. He con
tinues to publish essays, book reviews, and commentaries in a wide variety of
venues, including national newspapers, scholarly journals, and the Huffingto
n Post.
At Wesleyan, Roth has increased grant support for students who receive financ
ial aid and has overseen the launch of the Allbritton Center for the Study of
Public Life, the Shapiro Creative Writing Center, the multidisciplinary Coll
ege of the Environment, and efforts to anchor civic engagement in the Univers
ity’s culture.
