2017-2019 Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research Seeks GC Doctoral Student Teaching Fellows

The Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research seeks to expand the diverse ways the public humanities function in public life as a public good. Made possible by the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this initiative will bring together over 40 faculty, students, and–uniquely–civic, cultural, and community partners to produce and circulate research around four critical themes through public projects, engaged scholarship, and interdisciplinary activities at CUNY and throughout New York City.

Please join us at the upcoming information session to learn more about how to get involved. The session will be held on Friday 9/23/16 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm in Room 8301. To RSVP and for further inquiries, please email The Center for the Humanities.

This new seminar will build on our successful pilot program, which concludes in fall 2016 with a series of public talks, workshops, performances, classroom initiatives, and publications. The relationships forged between CUNY faculty and students and their civic and cultural partners in the public sphere during the pilot have led to an astonishingly diverse array of meaningful, creative, intellectual, digital, and civically minded projects with deep and far-reaching impact. The Center for the Humanities is thrilled to carry this work forward
