Joining host Bob Mann is the new NJCH Executive Director Carin Berkowitz, Ph.D. Berkowitz, a historian, scholar, humanist, mother, wife, and animal enthusiast, assumed leadership of the organization in October 2018, after being unanimously selected by the NJCH Board of Trustees.
In this special Humanities Connection interview, Berkowitz talks about why she believes in the power of the humanities and her professional experiences that led her to the Council. She also discusses what drew her to the New Jersey Council for the Humanities and what’s she most looking forward to in the coming year.
Humanities Connection is a monthly program that explores NJCH grantee projects and initiatives. Representatives from these nonprofit organizations discuss the impact of their public humanities programming in communities around the state. Sponsored by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities and broadcast on WFDU (89.1 FM), Fairleigh Dickinson University’s public radio station, Humanities Connection, hosted by Bob Mann, airs the last Saturday of each month at 12:30 p.m.
