2010. 05. 12.

CALDWELL – College of Idaho President Dr. Marv Henberg will deliver the college's annual liberal arts lecture on Thursday, May 13, at 6:30 pm in the Langroise Recital Hall. The title of President Henberg's lecture will be “The 'History' of Natural History.”

President Henberg will argue for the unity of knowledge throughout the sciences, social sciences, and humanities with specific reference to the concept of history as applied to nature. His talk will suggest that natural history is best understood as an amalgam of science, social science, and the humanities. His lecture is at the invitation of the Faculty Growth and Development Committee.

The College of Idaho's annual liberal arts lecture is free and open to the public. Following the event, there will be a reception at the President's House.
