Jeffrey Schnapp, Harvard: Teaching (design) Thinking
Tuesday, November 6, 4:00-5:30 pm, CHAT Lounge
What happens to humanistic scholarship in the print-plus or post-print era? What does it mean to envisage a world where the form that scholarly knowledge assumes is no longer a given and every work of scholarship is engaged in imagining and codifying new genres of scholarly communication? This talk will address these questions from the perspective of recent experiences and experiments at metaLAB (at) Harvard.
The Pennsylvania Humanities Council Invites History Non-Profits to Host a Commonwealth Speaker Discover stories of Pennsylvania communities that banded together during the Civil War. For more than twenty years, PHC’s Commonwealth Speakers program has partnered with scholars, artists and educators to provide engaging presentations on a variety of topics in the humanities. PHC offers programs in categories like local and national history, literature and the visual and performing arts. Organizations interested in celebrating the Civil War Sesquicentennial should take note of the talks offered in our “Civil War Era” category. While Speaker presentations are incredibly diverse in terms of topic and format, they all share a common feature, the opportunity for audiences to come together and learn from each other.
The 2012-13 Commonwealth Speakers line-up features more than 50 Speakers (you can also search by category).
Organizations can apply for one presentation per year. Information on the application process and responsibilities are available on the Pennsylvania Humanities Council website.
