Introducing “The Humanities in the Public Square@Illinois” blog series

Humanities scholars have long had multiple audiences in mind. The turn toward public humanities in the last decade has extended the reach of what we do, fueled in part by a sense of urgency about communicating our work to as broad a set of publics as possible. In the process, we have the opportunity to call some public communities into being and bring others into clearer view. At The Humanities in the Public Square@Illinois we feature posts by faculty and students working in various aspects of the humanities and seeking both to showcase upcoming events and draw new audiences to the many lively, vibrant humanities programs and events that animate the campus and beyond.

  1. Reblogged this on Illini Humanist and commented:

    Keep an eye on the IPRH blog this year for the many exciting humanities programs and events on campus. With a host of a new research clusters doing fascinating work in fields like digital documentary editing and medical humanities, new initiatives in the Library and History Department on everything from the Illinois bicentennial to mapping local histories to exhibiting the history and traditions of the university, and more, I have a feeling this is going to be a fantastic year for the humanities at Illinois!
