A Feast of Words, featuring Minnesota Transform

January 27 @ 7:00 pm-8:30 pm

Free

Join us online on Thursday, Jan 27 at 7 p.m. for a conversation about Minnesota Transform and the project’s central belief that deep engagement with community can enrich and challenge humanistic knowledge and the practices of the University. This event brings together panelists Mike Hoyt of Pillsbury House Theatre; Tracey Deutsch, Professor of History at the University of Minnesota; Jigna Desai, Professor of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Minnesota; and Kat Nelsen, a Social Sciences Librarian at the University Libraries.

Minnesota Transform is a $5 million higher education initiative funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that addresses decolonial and racial justice in the University, Twin Cities, and state through public humanities projects. We collaborate with Black, Indigenous, immigrant, and refugee communities to amplify historical interpretations, create new narratives and dialogues, foster community well-being, and inform policy responses at and beyond the University. The humanities — media, visual art, narratives, and vision — have been critical to survival and to life beyond mere survival: insurgency, resurgence, and solidarity. This initiative collaborates with community partners to place humanistic ways of knowing on the front line of struggles for justice.
