With DH at UF also public humanities, there is also more public humanities! UF has a new email list, UFImaginingAmerica-L@lists.ufl.edu! To subscribe, please follow these instructions or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll unsubscribe for you.
More about the list and activities from Sophia Acord:
Inspired by UF’s relationship with Imagining America: Arts and Scholars in Public Life, this list aims to build a network for community engagement and social justice work in the arts, humanities, and design. Please use this list to share relevant resources, events, CFPs, and announcements.
Please note some upcoming events and announcements:
- Applications are due June 1 for Imagining America’s PAGE (Publicly Active Graduate Education) Program. Please spread the word among publicly-active graduate students at UF.
- 2015-16 Postdoc in Public Humanities, Jordana Cox, will give a brown bag next Thursday, May 5, at 4pm at UF’s Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere (Walker Hall 200). Jordana will give a talk titled “The Phantom Public, The Haunted Audience: Finding the Public in the Federal Theatre Project’s Living Newspapers” (1935-9), then open up the floor for a discussion of public humanities across disciplines. Details are here.
- Applications are due May 16 for Imagining America/JGS (Joy of Giving Something) Fellowships. Please spread the word among publicly-engaged UF students (undergraduate and graduate) of photography or digital media. Details and applications are available here.
My thanks to all of you for incubating this community of practice at UF, and to our 2015-16 Postdoc in the Public Humanities, Jordana Cox, for this structure bringing us together,
