Humanities Futures: Undergraduate work with the Black Communities Conference
April 9 @ 4:00 pm
The closing event in the Humanities for the Public Good Symposium, “Humanities Futures” is an undergraduate student-led reflection on the Humanities Futures program and their work with the Black Communities Conference.
Our Theme: “What Now?”
We chose the theme “What Now?” to reckon with this historic moment. In a time when there is division political and physical, grief that is uniquely personal and broadly cultural, how do move ahead as people endeavoring to engage the public? Scholars and artists on campus and off have had to innovate their organizing tools and change their expectations. This symposium is a moment to think through all we’ve learned and how it will shape the work to come.
We’re inviting engaged scholars, humanists, artists, and cultural workers to come together to talk about what happens now. How do we meet the public in new ways? And how to we keep our critical conversations and projects accessible and democratic? We’ll hear from a range of voices— experienced scholars confident in their paths and works in progress finding their footing. We’ll also celebrate the work happening with feature panels and artistic experiences. Join us!
