Scholarship as Public Practice: A Colloquia Series

What is public scholarship? Who are its publics and audiences? What kinds of artifacts does it yield? What claims can be made about it?

This colloquia series seeks to foster crossdisciplinary conversation about scholarship as public practice. The series builds on the portfolio-based curriculum that informs the graduate Certificate in Public Scholarship. It models a method for articulating the significance of publicly-engaged work for multiple audiences, inside and outside higher education.

All sessions at 3:30 pm in Communications 202. (Receptions follow).

Friday, October 12: Artifacts and Evidence, with Tad Hirsch (Art/Design), Jin Kyu Jung (Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences), and Sonnet Retman (American Ethnic Studies)

Friday, October 19: Publics and Audiences, with Luis Croquer (Henry Art Gallery), Ralina Joseph (Communication), and Moon Ho Jung (History)

Friday, October 26: Arguments and Claims, with Gillian Harkins (English), Kelly Fryer Edwards (Bioethics and Humanities), and Trevor Griffey (U.S. History, The Evergreen State College)

The Certificate in Public Scholarship enables University of Washington graduate students to integrate their intellectual, political, and professional interests through engagement with diverse publics. The Certificate’s students, faculty, and community partners generate public forms of culture, knowledge, and expression; re-envision the ends and means of higher education; and open professional pathways inside and outside the academy.

For more information on the Certificate, visit the Certificate in Public Scholarship site.
