What Difference Do We Make?
Research at the Stanford Humanities Center
How does the research conducted at the Humanities Center make a difference in the world? How do our fellows manage to keep that difference in sight as they do the work of scholarship? Three current Humanities Center fellows will provide brief responses to these questions, followed by a discussion with Q&A.
History, University of Haifa
“Forced to Choose: American Children, Choice Architects, and the Culture of Neoliberal Capitalism”
Lucía Martínez Valdivia
English, Reed College
“Audiation: Listening to Writing”
Afro-American Studies, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
“Beyond Loving: Love, Sex, and Marriage in the Black Freedom Movement”
A reception will follow the presentation.
Celebrate the Fellows is an annual event that takes a deep dive into the importance of humanities research to the world, by highlighting the projects that Humanities Center fellows are pursuing for the year.
