Summary:

The Humanities Action Lab is pleased to invite applications for the second cohort of Climates of Inequality and the COVID Crisis: Building Leadership at Minority Serving Institutions, funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. HAL seeks to support a new generation of “front-line” climate leaders to use public humanities to build public engagement in just climate solutions and responses to the pandemic.  A package of three fellowships will be awarded to each locality selected, supporting faculty ($10,000), community organizations ($10,000), and student fellowships ($5650).

 

HAL’s collaboration and co-curation approach centers the needs of community partners and frontline communities. We seek faculty and community partners who are willing to engage in a course and project collaboration about environmental justice during the 2022-23 AY, resulting in a co-created public humanities media piece on a history and current experience of environmental justice in your locality, for inclusion in the Climates of Inequality traveling exhibition.  Faculty and community partners should apply together, demonstrating an existing commitment to working together on a shared project.
