Who believes that the new lanes of University will be open today like the sign has been promising us for a month? Who believes anything anymore? Is there such a thing as “truth”? What is “justice”? Do these things exist in the world or just our minds? This is why the humanities are important, folks. In between your deep dive into The Republic, make sure to check out these tasty events. We’ve spent the time embedding ourselves into the community so that we can without a doubt serve up this top ten list of the greatest things you can get you and your people into. Finally, make sure to send us your best pics with #WDDI on the 'gram. You might just get featured in our often imitated, never duplicated, What We Did.
Info about stuff about things can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
