Humanities Labs: New Formations for Graduate Education

Date: Tuesday, February 22, 2022
Time: 1:00-2:30 PM CST
Zoom: Register

What is a humanities lab? Imagine a problem and project-based court in American or African American Studies, arts or performance, communication studies, film, GWSS, literature, language, history, philosophy, or religious studies in which your reading and writing addressed a pressing social challenge. Imagine testing how humanists could help address that challenge working alongside a community partner. Join us as we learn about humanities lab courses across the country. Then consider applying for summer funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Humanities for the Public Good initiative—perhaps with a colleague and/or community partner—to develop a humanities lab that both supports the goals of HPG and serves graduate students in your home department.

This virtual event is free and open to all, but registration is required.
