RDE Faculty Retreat Spring 2023: Community engagement

Featuring Davarian Baldwin, the Paul E. Raether Distinguished Professor of American Studies at Trinity College, founding director of the Smart Cities Lab, and author of “In the Shadow of the Ivory Tower: How Universities are Plundering Our Cities.”

RDE’s 2023 workshop is for Washington University humanities scholars who seek to incorporate community engagement in their teaching, research and service.

Sessions will:

  • emphasize the ethics and process of community engagement and guide participants through designing a mutually beneficial and reciprocal project or course;  
  • introduce local experts, on-campus resources and fruitful models of engaged humanities projects; and
  • feature frank conversations with community members about the power dynamics and practical aspects of community engaged projects.

Participants will leave the workshop with a working knowledge of best practices for community engagement as well as a draft sketch for a community engaged project of their own design.
