Humanities in Community:Questions in 21st Century

The Humanities in the Community will be explored at the 2017 Western Humanities Alliance gathering, 10:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Nov. 2 and 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Nov. 3 in the McCune Conference Room in the UCSB Humanities and Social Sciences Building.

All events are free and open to the public.

A number of questions will be examined, including:

What is the significance and power of community in the 21st century?

How has community been conceptualized and created by different cultures throughout history?

How are relationships between specific communities and the broader social milieu constructed and maintained?

In today’s global society, what provides the impetus for a life of civic engagement, built upon democratic values, goals and aspirations?

Is the “network” the latest form of community, now disconnected from the preconditions of shared physical or social space?

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
