Announcing the 2022-23 HumanitiesX Fellows

​​​​​​​​​​It is our pleasure to announce the 2022-23 HumanitiesX fellows. 

Our year-long fellowship supports three interdisciplinary teams as they collaboratively develop and deliver co-taught, project-based, community-engaged courses, to be offered in Spring 2023. The teams of new fellows and the courses they will develop—all focused on the theme of The Environment: Crisis and Action—are as follows:

  • Tim Elliott (Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse), Danielle Vance-McMullen (School of Public Service), and Jim Merrell (Managing Director of Advocacy, Active Transportation Alliance): developing the course, “Communicating with Contemporary Audiences About Environmental Action”
  • Li Jin (Modern Languages, Global Asian Studies) , Phillip Stalley (Political Science), and Sophia Wong Boccio (Executive Director, Sophia’s Choice): developing the course, “China’s Environmental Voices: Exploring China’s Ecological Crisis”
  • Steve Harp (The Art School), Miles Harvey (Department of English), and Becky Lyons (Director of Environment, Equity, and Engagement, Friends of the Chicago River): developing the course, “Rivers of Life: Chicago’s South Side and Its Waterways in Words and Images”
During the fellowship year, each team will work together—and in tandem with the full HumanitiesX cohort—to develop the team-taught, interdisciplinary course, which foregrounds project-based learning and explores the Collaborative’s annual theme.

Please join us in congratulating our colleagues and welcoming our community partners!
