The New Hampshire Humanities Collaborative (NHHC) will host its spring scholarly event, “We Hold These Truths” Friday, April 8, 2022, from 2-4 p.m. at NHTI—Concord’s Community College.
Sponsored by the NHHC—including the University of New Hampshire (UNH), the Global Racial and Social Inequality Lab (GRSIL) at UNH, and the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH)—the event will explore ideas of truth and equality and both historical and contemporary dialogues around the essential commitment expressed in the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
The event will include the following:
- NH State House tour (optional): 107 North Main St., Concord — 12-1 p.m. (meet in State House Visitor’s Center to right of main lobby)
- We Hold These Truths presentations: NHTI, 31 College Drive, Dr. Goldie Crocker Wellness Center — 2-4 p.m.
More than 100 faculty and college students from across N.H. will present research on social, artistic, and scientific representations of truth, exploring truth in history; gender studies; the classics; art, art history, and typography; music; literature; culture; the social sciences; and more. The public is invited to engage with faculty and students, engaging with these presentations. Refreshments will be provided.
