Publics for the Humanities?




Meeting Our Publics: A Search for the Right Questions in Public Humanities

Robert Gibbs


This volume contributes to ongoing discussions about the possibilities for
the humanities to relate to publics beyond the university. The essays offer
a harvest of thinking from a two-day workshop sponsored by the Consortium of
Humanities Centers and Institutes (CHCI) and hosted at the Jackman
Humanities Institute of the University of Toronto in June 2015. Scholars
from North America, Europe, Africa, and Australasia gathered to develop a
global perspective on issues that have changed radically since the broadcast
and public lecture models of the mid-twentieth century. We focused on how to
reinterpret the engagement of humanities scholarship with diverse publics,
moving beyond the quasi-missionary outreach model of the traditional public
humanities. What can we learn from our publics as well as bring to them? We
explored the history of universities; theories of publics; public lectures
and festivals; and, to a lesser extent, the task of justifying humanities to
public funders and critics. Themes of inquiry and of education helped
contain what we discussed, and our reflection was located in the spaces of
humanities centres and research institutes - not in the main university
locations of departments and disciplines.
