The Emeriti and Retirees Associations invite you to an insightful UCLA Conversation on the importance of the humanities to society and to UCLA with David Schaberg, Professor of Asian Languages and Cultures, who served as Dean of Humanities from 2011 to 2022. Professor Schaberg, an eloquent advocate for the humanities, will discuss the humanities with Stuart Wolpert. Extensive explorations of how ancient history, East and West, has been written have informed Professor Schaberg’s perspective on the role of the humanities in the training of students and the making of societies. His research is distinguished by his mastery of Chinese, Greek and Latin, his knowledge of the primary historical texts from each culture and his ability to examine those works through the prism of the latest literary and critical theories. His research serves as a window into our understanding of early China, and helps us to understand Chinese ideas today.
