Public Humanities Projects

Dr. Emily Bloom, a Sarah Lawrence College Public Humanities Fellow and faculty member, is collaborating with the Wartburg Adult Care Community in Mount Vernon, New York, to connect undergraduates and seniors in a series of conversations about objects, memories, and the things that matter to us all.​

Dr. Kishauna Soljour, a Sarah Lawrence College Public Humanities Fellow and faculty member, created the African American Oral History project that sought to tell and archive stories from the community. In the fall 2021 semester, Soljour, in partnership with the Yonkers Public Library, curated Rooted: A Community Archive Project. Featuring the work of artists Evan Bishop, Katori Walker, Haifa Bint-Kadi, and Sola Olosunde, the exhibit consists of multiple works in a range of media organized around themes of collaboration and storytelling.
