The Humanities: How They Can Help Shape Public Policy
The current issue of the Maine Policy Review, published by the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center at the University of Maine, takes a multi-faceted look at the role the humanities play in our lives. In part two of our series on the issue, MPBN Morning Edition host Irwin Gratz talks with Anna Sims Bartel. Bartel is now associate director of Cornell University's Center for Engaged Learning and Research. But she's also worked for Bates College, which is how she was contacted by an editor with the Maine Policy Reivew to write an article for the publication. Bartel looks at the influence of the humanities on public policy.
