ARTS & HUMANITIES

37-3 Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities - 2014/2015 William S. Vaughn Visiting Fellowship (Vanderbilt)

The Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities will host a year-long interdisciplinary faculty seminar to explore questions related to publicly engaged scholarship and to examine what may gained and what may be lost for scholars and scholarship when we are asked to make our work more accessible to a broad general audience. How will the future of scholarly research in the humanities be impacted by this increasing emphasis on publicly engaged scholarship as well as by the turn to digital humanities and other forms of new media? How do we prepare ourselves and our graduate students for this changing landscape? Publicly engaged scholarship involves partnerships between faculty members at academic institutions and individuals or organizations in the private and public sectors for the purpose of creating and distributing knowledge as well as promoting meaningful shared discourse.
