    • The goal of this hands-on workshop on “How to Communicate Your Humanities Scholarship to the Public” is to teach scholars in the humanities and allied fields how to document, remediate, and assess one’s humanities work and how to communicate the products of research and teaching to public audiences. The workshop focuses on how to use different media for distinct audiences, and how to assign meaning and value of one’s daily work by using a variety of metrics. To frame this workshop, participants will be presented with the proposal for a new humanities communication center and training program meant to support their efforts moving forward.
