Staff Picks – DIY Humanities Week #3
We’re all spending a lot more time online. This is what our intern, Ryan McCarty, found that’s worth the attention:
Like most of us, I have been thinking about the CARES Act and what it means for the country. One helpful source for unpacking the stimulus package is Freakonomics Radio. Host Stephen Dubner injects humanity into qualitative analysis of the nation’s pressing economic issues. As a student majoring in history, I have also been reading articles investigating the New Deal on JSTOR’s open source content. With my extra time at home, I enrolled in the Museum of Modern Art’s class “Seeing Through Photographs” set to begin next week on Coursera. They offer a wide variety of free online courses in the humanities (among other topics).
