Critical Speakers Series presents Sidonie Smith, "Manifesto for the Humanities"

After a remarkable career in higher education, Sidonie Smith offers Manifesto for the Humanities as a reflective contribution to the current academic conversation over the place of the humanities in the twenty-first century. Her focus is on doctoral education and opportunities she sees for its own reform.
Grounding this manifesto in background factors contributing to current “crises” in the humanities, Smith advocates for a twenty-first century doctoral education responsive to the changing ecology of humanistic scholarship and teaching. She elaborates a more expansive conceptualization of coursework and dissertation, a more robust, engaged public humanities, and a more diverse, collaborative, and networked sociality.
The event is free and open to the public.
