The Public Humanities Skills Workshops is a series of sessions that seek to connect graduate fellows, the Columbia community, and the public with the skills, methods, and strategies to engage in the interdisciplinary field of the Public Humanities. In exploring approaches to public-facing, civically engaged scholarship, we address the critical frameworks and concepts that inform the public humanities alongside skills-training in civic field-work and digital platforms The Fall 2022 session consists of five sessions that cover podcasting, social practice, interviewing, digital archives, and mapping. Workshop sessions, led each week by an innovative practitioner, also explore underlying theories on praxis, intersectionality, decoloniality, and intermedia through targeted readings and discussions.
These workshops are hosted by the Public Humanities Initiative, lead by our Public Humanities Fellows, and open to all. Advanced registration is required.
