This spring, the
HumanitiesX 2021-22 cohort deployed the inaugural renditions of their project-based community-engaged courses. To better show off and share about these courses – and the projects students completed within them – we've a developed a showcase page for each course.
Professors Amy Tyson and Chris Solis Green worked with the Brighton Park Neighborhood Council (BPNC) to conduct a series of oral histories with community organizers and Latinx immigrant activists. Students organized and condensed these oral histories into a digital and print anthology.
Professors Yuki Miyamoto and Kerry Ross worked with the Japanese Arts Foundation to create a student-driven arts exhibit featuring handmade floating lanterns. The exhibit and subsequent floating lantern ceremony investigated the ways art has been used to negotiate identity in the Atomic Age.
