In Spring 2017, Carolina Public Humanities offered a new initiative—the Maynard Adams Symposium—designed to bring scholars and the general public into dialogue on issues important to living (in Adam’s words) in a “society fit for human beings.” The Adams Symposium is a two-day event that features a keynote address and a panel of scholars from a variety of humanities perspectives. The first Adams Symposium featured a keynote address by Martha C. Nussbaum, the Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics at the University of Chicago.
