Humanities for the Public Good (HPG) Graduate Fellows will hold skill-building placements with local cultural institutions, on or off campus, which serve or collaborate with publics beyond the academy. Selected fellows will advance defined projects in a public interest, and will strengthen their capacity for applying public humanities methods. These graduate students will also be responsible for attending monthly workshops on-campus through the Humanities for the Public Good Initiative, over the course of the 2020-21 academic year, and agree to serve as peer mentors for future HPG fellows.
