Welcome To The 7th Annual PAGE Blog Salon!
By Imagining America | September 23, 2018
The 2018-2019 PAGE Fellows are scholars, activists, and artists at universities across the United States. They are dedicated to advancing critical inquiry into social movements, cultural production, and issues of social and political agency using storytelling, public scholarship, and engaged pedagogy. Together their work spans the theories and practices of engaged scholarship, both in and outside of academia.
The Blog Salon will take place over five days, featuring diverse content produced by the Fellows each day. We invite you to engage with these innovative scholars and the entire PAGE community with your comments, questions, and insights. This year’s Salon format is organized with Fellows reflecting on the current political moment and the following prompt:
This current moment of intense political crisis challenges Imagining America’s core principles and values of citizenship, full participation, reciprocity, community organizing, and intersectional activism. How do you see your public scholarship and/or engaged artistic practice in conversation with these values? How might you describe your public scholarship and/or engaged artistic practice as contributing to your communities, institutions, and the overall project of citizenship?
We are truly excited to introduce this year’s Fellows to you. The Fellows and PAGE alums will be continuing these conversations during IA’s national gathering in Chicago, IL in a session entitled: PAGE Fellows Lightning Talks on October 19th. We look forward to discussing strategies for how to thrive at the intersections of academia, creative praxis, and engagement.
