An Invitation to the 2011 Caldwell Award for the Humanities

You are invited to the John Tyler Caldwell Award for the Humanities celebration on Oct. 21, at 7:00 p.m., at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, honoring scholar and statesman David Price. Price is unique among his colleagues on the Hill. Before serving in the U.S. Congress, he was a professor of political science and public policy at Duke University and is the author of four books on the American political system. He holds a Bachelor of Divinity and a Ph.D. in Political Science from Yale University. With Duke President Richard Brodhead, Price is co-chair of the newly created American Academy Commission on the Humanities and Social Sciences,

a bipartisan, bicameral group of Congressional leaders. Price also co-chairs the National Service Caucus, the Congressional Vision Caucus, and the Congressional Humanities Caucus.

Richard Brodhead will deliver the annual Caldwell Lecture in the Humanities, and Thomas Ross, president of the UNC school system, will confer the Caldwell Award. The Linda Flowers Literary Award and Award for Excellence in the Public Humanities will also be presented. Music by Laurelyn Dossett. Dessert reception follows.
