Humanities Alliance Roundup: February Edition

The CUNY Humanities Alliance began this semester at LaGuardia Community College on Friday, February 2, 2018 with the first part of a two part Winter Institute, where fellows workshopped their syllabuses with each other and their faculty mentors, and obtained practical advice for new faculty at LaGuardia. The next institute will take place on Friday, February 23, 2018 at the Graduate Center.
Community College and the Future of the Humanities is the theme of a national conference that will be jointly convened by LaGuardia Community College and the Graduate Center. The CUNY Humanities Alliance invites workshop proposals from community college students, four-year college students, graduate students, mentors, faculty, and administrators that address one or more of the following topics:

  • Innovative Pedagogies: Community College Pedagogy and Curricula in the Humanities
  • Transfer and Continuity: Pathways between Community and Four-year Colleges
  • Diversity and Inclusion: Learning and Life Circumstances of the “New Majority” College Student
  • Value of Humanities: examining, articulating, and affirming humanities education in the lives and careers of students, and for the broader public
  • Research and Professional Pathways: Connecting interests, research, teaching, and professional development

The committee encourages creative and participatory formats for sessions. For more details about the conference and the link to submit a proposal, visit the Call for Papers. The deadline for proposals is March 31, 2018.
