Working in Public: Generosity and the Knowledge Commons

Featured Keynote: Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Director of Digital Humanities and Professor of English Michigan State University

Co-sponsored by the UBC Library and the UBC Public Humanities Hub

Working in public, and with the public, can enable scholars to build vital, sustainable research communities, both within their fields, with other scholars in different fields, and with folks off-campus who care about the kinds of work that we do. By finding ways to connect with a broad range of publics, in a range of different registers, and in ways that allow for meaningful response, we can create the possibilities for far more substantial public participation in and engagement with the humanities, and with the academy more broadly. This talk explores the ideas in Professor Fitzpatrick’s influential book, Generous Thinking, and will focus on the challenges posed by working in public and the skills required to develop more publicly engaged scholarship.
