Other projects

classphoto_original-2In addition to research and teaching in the ‘standard’, academic sense, I try to get involved in and to promote projects in the area of the ‘Public Humanities’.

Someone with the skills and expertise acquired through a doctorate in the Humanities is in a great position to make a difference in their community as creators, organizers, sense-makers.

For this reason, I have recently obtained a Certificate in Engaged and Public Humanities at Georgetown University, with which I also received a Humanities Ambassador Fellowship for the project The Good Citizen – Human Nature and Public Life.

The project is now also featured here!

(The project is still ‘in the works’, as I have applied to a small grant from the American Philosophical Association)
