HERA is exploring Transformations that occur in four groupings or "streams"; transformative Humanities pedagogy, Humanities research, creative contributions, and making the most of this transformative moment.
Transformative Humanities Pedagogy highlights Humanities teaching at all levels, engaged learning, and teaching to transform.
Transformative Humanities Research includes Humanities research in many disciplines including but not limited to Architecture, Art, Art History, Aesthetics, Classics, Composition, Dance, Design, Film Studies, History, Literature, Media, Museum Studies, Music, Music Theater, Philosophy, Religion and Theater, Humanities research in many different areas including but not limited to Globalization, Sexuality, Gender, Family, Technology, Ethnic studies, the Environment, and Sustainability studies.
Transformative Creative Contributions include active Humanities contributions through workshops, performances, and discussion groups.
Making the Most of this Transformative Moment explores using the Humanities, including Humanities Education and Research, in ways that avoid pitfalls like cynicism and embrace qualities like optimism and courage as we use our power to make the most of this transformative moment.
