Collaborative Research and the Future of Higher Education: Building Diverse Campus-Community Partnerships
Time & Location
About The Event
How do the structures of higher education help or hinder efforts to bridge campuses and communities? Why are fields that teach interpretive and "meaning-making" methods so important? How might graduates with bachelor or graduate degrees in the humanities and humanistic social sciences bring the methodological and intellectual insights of their fields into the public sphere in a moment where higher ed and government are pursuing policies of austerity and "applicability" of knowledge? How might researchers in these disciplines respond to diverse local problems in collaboration with their local communities? Speakers include Laura Goldblatt, Chris Newfield, Althea Sircar, and Mike Strayer.
