Seven Cautionary Tales for Publicly Engaged Humanities in 2023
This discussion, led by Dr. Antoinette Burton and Dr. Jenny L. Davis with UBC practitioners and scholars of public humanities work, shares lessons learned from the “Humanities Without Walls” project (housed at the Humanities Research Institute, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) and from reciprocal, collaborative partnerships with Minority Serving Institutions and community organizations in the face of institutional impediments embedded in the infrastructures of the predominantly white bureaucratic cultures of the research university in North America.
Dr. Antoinette Burton is Professor of History, Maybelle Leland Swanlund Professor Endowed Chair, and Director of the Humanities Research Institute at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).
Dr. Jenny L. Davis is a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation and Associate Professor of Anthropology and American Indian Studies at UIUC, where she is the Director of the American Indian Studies Program.
