Appointed as Program Manager, Humanities Action Lab

The Humanities Action Lab (HAL) is a national center for testing and evaluating how to activate public humanities—especially participatory history, memory, and story-sharing—to address urgent social issues. HAL is a coalition of universities, issue organizations, and public spaces in 20 cities that collaborate to produce community-curated national public humanities projects. Students and community stakeholders in each community collaborate to research and develop shared national exhibits, web projects, public programs, and other innovative strategies for humanities-based public engagement. The Program Manager will work with HAL’s network of partners around the country to create humanities-based public dialogues on pressing social issues. During the period of the fellowship, the fellow will support programs around the current States of Incarceration project and contribute to the development of the theme and intellectual framework for HAL’s next project.
