Principles and practices for public scholarship and teaching
Does engaged scholarship play an important role in the revitalization of the humanities in the 21st century? Author Gregory Jay asserts that “the future of the humanities depends upon two interrelated innovations: the organized implementation of project based engaged learning and scholarship, on the one hand, and the continued advancement of digital and new media learning and scholarship, on the other hand” (Jay, 51). This paper discusses examples of engaged humanities and the institutional obstacles they face, concluding with a prediction on how new media is changing “the public” and thus shaping opportunities for scholarship and engagement.
