WELCOME TO GLOBAL ARTS + HUMANITIES DISCOVERY THEME
THE REVOLUTION WILL BE STAGED
Ahead of Josette Bushell-Mingo's October 15 visit to campus, Associate Professor Ryan Skinner (School of Music and AAAS) shares this inspired essay from his forthcoming manuscript.
FOCUS AREA: COMMUNITY
Community participants co-design collaborations with communities that embrace diverse perspectives including cross-disciplinary methods and practices to advance public-facing, partner-engaged work.
FOCUS AREA: IM/MOBILITY
Initiatives in Im/mobility engage the multifaceted aspects of migration and movement that people experience from transnational and local movements to the spatial and social isolation of communities and individuals stemming from social, cultural, political, environmental and economic factors.
FOCUS AREA: LIVABILITY
Livability initiatives focus on the potential of the arts and humanities to address challenges presented by the climate crisis, struggles for livable communities, environmental justice, land and food sovereignty and social rights in health and cultural systems.
FOCUS AREA: AMPLIFIER
The Methods and Practices Amplifier emphasizes methodological exchanges and practices that showcase the integration of arts and humanities methods across the disciplines, emphasize innovative methods and practices that have social impact, and engage methodological challenges through collaboration.
HARNESSING THE POWER OF THE INTEGRATED ARTS + HUMANITIES
The Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme facilitates cross-disciplinary collaboration in the arts and humanities by providing support in the form of research and creative practice grants, graduate team and postdoctoral research fellowships and experiential teaching and learning grants. By breaking down barriers to meaningful collaboration, we create an inclusive culture that empowers faculty, staff and students to foster social change, create sustaining life-worlds and develop a global ethic of responsibility.
Global Arts + Humanities is part of the Discovery Themes, a university-wide initiative created with the goal of connecting experts and facilitating cross-disciplinary research to accelerate new discoveries and translate knowledge into practical solutions for meaningful impact.
