Miles of Murals: A Rogers Park ProjectThe
HumanitiesX team is excited to use next year to develop new
project-based courses for DePaul students, which explore the environment and climate from interdisciplinary and community-engaged perspectives.
Full-time faculty in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (LAS) who already teach about environmental issues as well as those excited to explore this subject area are encouraged to meet with Prof. Dush to brainstorm their ideas for a proposal to become a 2022-23 HumanitiesX fellow and develop a
HumanitiesX course. These courses are designed and deployed by teams of two LAS faculty in different disciplines and a representative from a community organization, with a goal to engage students in projects that benefit the organization. Alumni who work at nonprofit organizations focused on engaged with environmental issues are encouraged to get in touch with HumanitiesX Coordinator Deborah Siegel-Acevedo (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Teams awarded this year-long fellowship receive extensive support for the collaborative development and delivery of a co-taught, project-based, community-engaged course to be offered in Spring 2023. Faculty members receive three course releases and a summer stipend. Community-partner organizations receive a generous stipend of $17,600.
“In the collaborative spirit of HumanitiesX, successful proposals for participation in the fellowship typically involve preliminary conversations with our team,” says Prof. Dush. Faculty and community organization representatives may schedule a
60-minute Zoom brainstorm meeting with Prof. Dush in December or January to explore and develop ideas that will make for a compelling application package.
