Henry will discuss cognitive science, humanities at Founders’ Day

Dr. Charles Henry will discuss “Riddles: A Spell between Cognitive Science and the Humanities” at Lyon College’s Founders’ Day Convocation at 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 18, in Sloan Auditorium.

Lyon President Dr. W. Joseph King said the Founders’ Day convocation is an annual event to observe and celebrate the College’s founding in 1872. 

“This day is a chance for the Lyon community to reflect on the origins of the College, who we are as an institution, and how we carry on that legacy,” King said. 

“We’re excited that Dr. Henry will be joining us on Founders’ Day to share his experience with library sciences, the humanities, and more from his distinguished career.”

Henry is the president of the Council of Library and Information Resources (CLIR). He serves on the Board of Trustees of Tan Tao University in Vietnam, the advisory board of Stanford University Libraries, and the board of the Center for Research Libraries. 

He is a member of the Scientific Board of the Open Access Publishing in the European Network project and the co-PI of the Digital Library of the Middle East.

The convocation is free and open to the public.
