Trinity’s Public Humanities Collaborative Announces Remote Teams for Summer 2020

In its third year, The Public Humanities Collaborative (PHC), a component of Trinity’s Summer Research Program funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will look a little different as students, faculty, and Hartford-area humanities partners come together remotely to explore themes in the humanities and creatively engage both scholarly and public audiences. Through the last two years, we have seen how PHC gives students the opportunity to engage with multiple methods and contexts for creating new knowledge in the humanities by participating in small teams that work on faculty scholarship, on partners’ public humanities projects, and meet regularly to learn about community collaboration and digital tools. We wanted to ensure that these opportunities would continue this year, despite our current struggles. From the large pool of applications, PHC selected sixteen students to work on five teams conducting research and crafting public humanities projects with each student receiving a $3500 stipend during this 10-week program. The Public Humanities Collaborative is coordinated by Megan Faver Hartline, Director of Community Learning at Trinity College
