Sarah Larson Lecture Series in the Humanities
Welcome to the Sarah Larson Lecture Series in the Humanities at Georgia Perimeter College. The lecture series was
founded in 2010, and named after a valued and beloved faculty member who served
GPC for more than 20 years.
The key to the great success of the Sarah Larson Lecture Series has been enthusiastic support from faculty and students. Faculty have devoted time, talent, and real work to organize, publicize, and recruit well-known speakers on popular topics in the
Humanities. Students have responded with gusto, voluntarily coming to campus for these events. Overflow crowds, hundreds of students and community members, standing-room only attendance testify to the eternal relevance of the
Humanities to an advanced society and pulverize the philistines darkening our counsel with words without knowledge. For the English
and Humanities departments, of primary importance is involving students with faculty; their interest and participation have been spectacular. We look forward to offering as much opportunity as possible in the
Humanities for cultural growth, for personal enrichment, for academic study, and
for careers that are fulfilling and rewarding.
This project is supported by the Georgia Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly. For more information on the Georgia Humanities Council, click the image below.
