CURRENTS: Humanities Work Now

The Dresher Center’s CURRENTS: Humanities Work Now lunchtime series showcases exciting new faculty work in a dynamic and interdisciplinary setting.  Designed to promote ongoing conversation and multi-disciplinary investigation, these works-in-progress meetings offer faculty and advanced graduate students an informal venue for presentation, conversation, and ongoing collaborative exchange.

CURRENTS presentations take many forms:

  • Discussion of a key research question at the heart of an article or major project,
  • Conversation about methodological issues surrounding multi- or trans-disciplinary work,
  • Presentation of a working draft of a new paper,
  • Exploration of opportunities and challenges surrounding digital and multi-modal scholarship,
  • Consultation with other scholars about a grant or other major project proposal.

Since conversation is at the heart of all CURRENTS events, faculty are encouraged to pre-circulate materials but not to present formal papers.

The Dresher Center appreciates the generous support of the Office of the Vice President for Research and the Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.

All sessions begin at noon, with lunch available at 11:30 a.m., in the Dresher Center Conference Room (Performing Arts and Humanities Building, Room 216).
