Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities is an honorary lecture series established in 1972 by the National Endowment for the Humanities. According to the NEH, the Lecture is "the highest honor the federal government confers for distinguished intellectual achievement in the humanities." The Jefferson Lecturer is selected each year by the National Council on the Humanities, the 26-member citizen advisory board of the NEH. The honoree delivers a lecture in Washington, D.C., generally in conjunction with the spring meeting of the Council, and receives an honorarium of $10,000. The stated purpose of the honor is to recognize "an individual who has made significant scholarly contributions in the humanities and who has the ability to communicate the knowledge and wisdom of the humanities in a broadly appealing way."show more
