What will 21st century humanities pedagogy look like? How might we strengthen and diversify the humanities and engage and inspire a new generation of learners? What is already being done, and what new models and structures might we create, to shape a future of undergraduate research that re-centers the importance of the humanities in undergraduate education at Illinois?

The Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH) and the Illinois Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) invite faculty and staff to participate in this important conversation, which will begin with a keynote by Ellen McClure, professor of French and Francophone Studies and History, and Director of the new Engaged Humanities Initiative (EHI) at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

  • Bob Morrissey, Associate Professor of History
