What are the “Public Humanities”? How have UP faculty and students participated in Public Humanities work? And how might the Public Humanities enable or inspire your own thinking, learning, and teaching—and be mutually enriching for you and for the public? The organizers of the Public Research Fellows program invite you to join a discussion of these questions and more on Thursday, April 8 from 4-5:15 p.m. at this Zoom link. We’ll be sharing some pillars of the public humanities, giving an overview of how the PRF program has enacted these, and inviting input from participants about other ways of envisioning Public Humanities work at UP and beyond. Whether you’ve been involved in this work before, have been merely curious about it, or are even skeptical about the need for anything called “public humanities,” we’d love to hear your insights.
All members of the UP community–faculty, staff, and students–are welcome.
