Humanities Nebraska (Lincoln, NE 68508-1836)
Christopher Sommerich (Project Director: August 2016 to June 2019)
Nebraska Chautauqua - World War I: Legacies of a Forgotten War

Humanities Nebraska will bring people of all ages together at the World War I: Legacies of a Forgotten War Chautauqua to explore WWI, how it shaped the past century, and how it continues to impact our world today. Chautauqua enables audiences to learn from historic figures as portrayed by humanities scholars; these portrayals are followed by moderated audience discussion with the historical figure and then with the scholar. Chautauqua also includes daily workshops and a Youth Chautauqua Camp for middle-school students studying local historic figures that develops skills in research, interpretation, and performance. Chautauqua particularly benefits rural residents with less access to the humanities. It engages the public through an effective combination of education and entertainment, enabling people to use the humanities to explore how important aspects of our past relate to our present and future.
