Going Public - Reimagining the Humanities PhD

In October, Professors Colin Marshall and Ian Schnee appeared on Going Public, the Simpson Center’s podcast exploring public scholarship and publicly engaged teaching in the humanities. Colin and Ian discussed the courses they developed using funds from the Mellon Summer Collaborative Fellowship and philosophy as a public practice.

 “This made me really excited to think about the kinds of philosophical writing that we teach students, broadening it beyond the five-page argumentative thesis-driven essay…and think about audience much more broadly in terms of our philosophical writing, because I saw how excited students get when they don't have to stretch to relate the material they're learning in class to their daily lives.” – Ian Schnee
