In this course, we will study the development of Arts of Citizenship, an interdisciplinary public scholarship program at the University of Michigan. We will engage key projects and figures from the 1990s to the present who have integrated community engagement into the humanities and arts, and collaborative education at the undergraduate and graduate levels through this program. Our goal will be to examine how the practice of place-based engaged learning in the humanities has transformed higher education along democratic lines. The class will meet in a seminar format to discuss assigned readings, report on findings from the archive, reflect on the larger themes of public scholarship and community engaged work, and discuss the progress of group projects.
