Event 1 - Starting Points: Higher ed perspectives on how to begin a publicly engaged humanities practice
Across college and university campuses, humanities scholars are responding to an increasing call (from students, administrators, faculty, local community members, and scholarly societies) to employ the tools of their discipline to engage with public audiences outside of the academy. But how does one get started? What skill sets need to be learned? And how does one navigate a complex network of funding and support structures that vary widely based on institution type, discipline, and region?

This moderated conversation will call upon humanities scholars based in higher education to share examples of how they began a publicly engaged humanities practice. The conversation will be facilitated by Michelle May-Curry, project director of the Humanities for All initiative, and will include:

- Jason Ruiz, associate professor of American studies at the University of Notre Dame, 2019-2020 Whiting Fellow and project director for “Latinx Murals of Pilsen: A Digital Toolkit for Scholarship, Teaching, and Discovery”

-Araceli Hernández-Laroche, associate professor of modern languages and director of the South Carolina Centro Latino at the University of South Carolina, Upstate

- Hana Maruyama, assistant professor of history, University of Connecticut and co-creator/producer of Campu, a podcast created in partnership with the Japanese American oral history organization Densho
