Through an introduction to several public humanities projects–Voices from the Waterways, The Museum of the Anthropocene, The Anthropocene Household, and The Covid-19 Oral History Project–this presentation explores the ways in which public scholarship has transformed in response to the current pandemic as well as the ways in which it encourages us to rethink the practices of public scholarship. This talk will draw theoretical connections between the ways that the arts and humanities approach environmental research and the scholarship of pandemics.
This seminar is part of the “Water, water every where… Interdisciplinary online seminar series organised in collaboration with Ca’ Foscari’s Research Institute for Digital and Cultural Heritage and Venice Centre for Digital and Public Humanities
