Building Publics: Humanities Combating Isolation on Wednesday, 17 June at 4:00pm (New York)

Building Publics: Humanities Combating Isolation is a series featuring the work of the SOF/Heyman 2019-2020 Public Humanities Graduate Student and Humanities New York Fellows. This week’s presentation, featuring Akua Banfula Ph.D. candidate in English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University, is the last of the series.

Her Public Humanities project, "Climate Arts: Reading, Recycling, Making," is a mixed curriculum of climate-oriented fiction along with recycled and otherwise environmentally-engaged art aimed at high school students. Through reading and discussing literature, contemplating recycled art, and completing a project of their own—the students will gain a sense of the ways in which the arts can respond to our current climate predicament.
