A new event series on ART, ACTIVISM, AND THE ENGAGED HUMANITIES is currently being planned for FALL 2022 and Spring 2023 at CU Boulder. This event series is being collaboratively designed and supported by several entities at CU Boulder including but not limited to The WRITE Lab/Program for Writing and Rhetoric, the College of Arts and Sciences and the A & S Office for Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion; the English Department; the Division of Student Affairs; the American Music Research Center; the CU Art Museum; the Department of Ethnic Studies; the Center for Humanities & the Arts; and The Center for African and African American Studies. Through a series of performances, speaking engagements, workshops, and community collaborations, this event series intends to galvanize the study of and participation in the Engaged Humanities at CU Boulder and the larger community. The Engaged Humanities is a cross-disciplinary effort to cultivate more inclusive, interconnected, and just communities and institutions through publicly engaged research, teaching, and creative projects. This event series hopes to generate interest in the Engaged Humanities among students, staff, faculty, and local community members by speaking into and showcasing how humanities research, art (digital storytelling, speech, music, poetry, dance, print making), and activism can come together to generate powerful collection action toward more just futures.
