Dr. Randall-Griffiths Quoted by Ohio Humanities

Dr. Deleasa Randall-Griffiths, Associate Professor and Director of the Online Communication Studies Program, was quoted by the Ohio Humanities, an organization dedicated to promoting the humanities in Ohio through collaborations with cultural and educational institutions, in its coverage of the Ashland Chautauqua.

Dr. Randall-Griffiths, who is the project director of the Ashland Chautauqua, noted the significance of 2017 for the Chautauqua and of the importance of the Chautauqua's relationship with Ohio Humanities:
Earlier this year, Ashland Chautauqua received the Ashland Area Chamber of Commerce award for “Culture and Recreation.”  Accepting that award validated our many years producing the annual five-day event that brings history to life, Chautauqua style. None of this, not the award and certainly not the many years of scholarly performances and workshops, would have been possible without Ohio Humanities. Our community is enriched each year by Ohio Humanities. They help us see the present through the past and expand our notion of what it means to be human.         
According to the Ohio Humanities' blog, Ashland Chautauqua "exemplifie[s]...part of Ohio Humanities' mission to help leverage local support for cultural and heritage programming."

Congratulations to the Ashland Chautauqua and to Dr. Randall-Griffiths and thank you to the Ohio Humanities for its generous support.
