This series invites campus artists, humanities scholars, and researchers in the sciences and social sciences to imagine the many ways that our campus and connected spaces might serve as a living laboratory for environmental research.
The series includes visits from facilities and research leaders at other campuses who have developed transformative, place-based research collaborations that include students, staff, and faculty. It culminates in a Design Workshop for Environmental Studies Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration led by Lesley-Ann Noel, professor of design at North Carolina State University.
These events are hosted by the UI Obermann Center for Advanced Studies and generously co-sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research.
Join us on March 1 and 2, 2024, to celebrate the exciting outcomes of our multi-year grant from the Mellon Foundation focused on the transformation of humanities graduate education, Humanities for the Public Good. We've invited leaders of innovative graduate programs that also see the humanities as crucial to the public good to join us for this two-day symposium. It will be an opportunity to share our successes and to build a local and national learning community of students, staff, and faculty committed to new possibilities for graduate education in the humanities.
The symposium is free and open to all.
