Creativity and Resilience: Humanistic Fieldwork during a Pandemic

Thursday, April 1, 2021 at 5:00pm to 6:30pm

Virtual Event

The Society for the Humanities and Rural Humanities present a virtual panel discussion of three recent and ongoing student projects supported by Humanities NY fellowships and grants.

2020-21 Public Humanities Fellows:

  • John William Kennedy, Ph.D. candidate in Romance Studies
    Hispanicism and Documentary Fieldwork: Creating Public Engagement 
    This visual project seeks to explore the relationship between Mexico and Guatemala in terms of migration and border security through the documentation of the estuarine expansion of the Suchiate. Drawing on the field of Hispanic studies broadly conceived, this documentary draws on a collaborative spirit to indexically frame stories of migration and engage in public discussion.
  • Sara Stamatiades, Ph.D. candidate in Literatures in English
    Why Here, Why Now? Adapting My Public Humanities Project
    "Shadows of 2020" is a playwriting workshop designed for Tompkins County residents of all writing and theater experience levels. The goal of the workshop is to build community while learning to write 10-minute plays that reflect on the (sur)realities of the past year.

2020 Community Partnership Grantee:

Moderated by Gerard Aching, co-principal investigator of Rural Humanities and professor of Africana and Romance studies
