Practicing Public Scholarship


Through reading, discussion and practice this course introduces graduate students to a range of approaches to the public scholarship: writing books for broader publics; writing for newspapers and magazines; doing interviews on radio and television; collaborations with community organizations, museums, libraries; collaborations with K-12 schools and teachers; developing and sustaining successful digital projects with broad public impact. We will read and discuss examples of all these kinds of work, but students will also develop and carry out their own public humanities projects over the course of the semester in dialogue with other students.
