Special Issue - Publics for the Humanities?
University of Toronto Quarterly - Volume 85, Number 4, Fall 2016
The essays in this issue develop four conversations about how the humanities
engage or should engage with the array of publics that characterise local
and global cultures in the twenty-first century. What modes of engagement
matter for humanities centres and scholars? What can we learn from our
publics as well as bring to them?
This collection brings together scholars from North America, Europe, Africa
and Australasia to develop a global perspective on issues that have changed
radically since the broadcast and public lecture era of the mid-twentieth
century. 'After theory' it is crucially important to think through how
engagement needs to be more reflective and reflexive than the
quasi-missionary outreach model of the traditional public humanities. These
essays work with concrete examples of successful programs to generate a
subtle dialogue about what it means to be committed to the value of the
examined life in public places in an era of information profusion.
