The 2019 Cleveland Humanities Festival explores the relationship between society and the world of Nature from a variety of perspectives in history, literature, and the arts. 

The Cleveland Humanities Festival is a collaborative event celebrating the great cultural institutions of the city of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio dedicated to humanistic inquiry. The Festival engages the public in addressing some of society’s most challenging issues and pressing concerns. Coordinated by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities of Case Western Reserve University, the Festival is partnering with our region’s major museums, educational institutions, and arts organizations. The 2019 Cleveland Humanities Festival on “Nature” will offer public programming which explores this theme from a variety of humanistic perspectives, including the representation of the natural world in literature and the arts; climate change, its past history, future consequences, and the ethical problems it presents; and our constantly growing understanding of the science of nature and its impact on culture and society.

The 2018 Cleveland Humanities Festival was presented with the generous support of:
