THE PROVOST’S FELLOW IN THE PUBLIC HUMANITIES:

During the first year, the fellow will focus on creating networks for communication between centers, institutes, and departments championing public humanities work at the GC. During the second year, the fellow expands the scope of the established network to facilitate communication across all 24 CUNY campuses. By synthesizing their research, and unifying and amplifying these networks, this fellow will gain valuable insight into the ways in which public humanities efforts transform centers of higher education and the communities they serve while also ensuring greater cohesion and collaboration across the largest and most diverse public urban university in the country.

In the process, the GC Digital Fellows Program helps build out “The Digital GC” — a vision of the Graduate Center that incorporates technology into its core research and teaching missions. GC Digital fellows are particularly invested in the way in which questions of race, gender, and social justice intersect with technology.

 

Our work includes:
