Public Humanities: Challenges and Opportunities

Directors of leading humanities associations and initiatives discuss the impact and the challenges of public humanities, as an idea and as a method of study. What is public humanities, and why is it important? What forms of scholarly and creative output does it encompass? How can it be recognized and supported at institutional, national, and international levels? How do humanities scholars engage with a broad, diverse audience? How might these encounters change the nature and course of humanities study?
