Graduate Public Humanities Workshops


April 7-8, 2022


Hybrid: Van Dyck Hall 301 & Zoom

Sponsored by the SAS Dean of Humanities and the Center for Cultural Analysis


Register now!  

Are you convinced of the value of the humanities in everyday life? Do you believe in expanding access to dynamic scholarship? Have you wondered about different ways to share your work outside of the academy – especially in the new conditions created by the Covid-19 pandemic?

Join us for hybrid workshops introducing you to different methodologies within the field.

Each session will be an opportunity to learn from a scholar-practitioner, discuss tools, research, case studies -– the theory, method, and practice of the field.  


Although the workshop is geared toward graduate students in the humanities, all faculty, staff, and undergraduates are welcome to attend!  

We invite Rutgers community members to join us in-person for this event, and participants are also welcome to join via Zoom. All registrants will receive a Zoom link via email in advance of the event.  

These workshops are free but registration is required. You can participate in as many or as few sessions as you choose.
