Digital Literacy and Community Engagement: Building a Public Humanities Praxis
Wednesday, October 2
Presented by: Julian Chambliss, Professor of English at Michigan State University
Location: Watson Library, Rm 455
REGISTRATION CLOSED. THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL.
In this workshop, we explore models for developing a public humanities practice that brings the classroom and the community into dialogue. From small intervention to systemic transformation, a “classroom as platform” model offers the opportunity to empower faculty and enhance student engagement. We will examine how to design a digital humanities praxis that links to the community, how this praxis might enhance teaching and learning, and how such a praxis fits within a broader scholarly narrative.
This workshop is intended for KU faculty or students who are developing or plan to develop a community-oriented digital humanities project. Participants will form a cohort of like-minded scholars who will meet periodically over the coming year to share ideas, feedback, and support
