This summer, we’re hosting the Humanities Commons Summer Refresh Workshop! #HCSummerRefresh will be held twice this summer, once from Monday, July 8th to Friday, July 12th, and the second time from Monday, August 5th to Friday, August 9th. Taking part in this workshop will help you to set aside time to update your digital presence on HC. It will also give you a space to ask questions, connect with other users, and see the various exciting ways that other scholars use HC to build their presence online.

Last summer, Humanities Commons honored one of the most time-honored traditions of the season: summer camp. We hosted a virtual summer camp for users old and new. It helped participants to update, build, and achieve an outstanding digital presence through HC. Please check out the discussions from Summer 2018 to see the fantastic work and thought-provoking conversations that our participants took part in last year.

    Hello, everyone!

    I hope you’re enjoying yourselves as you work your way through our networking challenge. I’m really enjoying reading and participating in the thoughtful discussions surrounding HC groups in our Challenge #2 discussion thread. If you haven’t yet, do check out what other campers have been thinking and noticing!

    If you’re looking for an extra way to engage with the HC community, look no further: Our second advanced mini challenge has arrived!

    Our second mini challenge encourages you to build and maintain your own HC group.  Tips and instructions (as well as information explaining why someone might want to create a group) can be found on our most recent blog post over here.

    Good luck! Please reach out if you have any questions and please share any groups you create by posting links to them in this discussion thread!

    I took on the mini challenge and created a new group titled “Neoliberal Fiction.” As with many of the campers, I initially struggled to find groups specifically tailored to my fields of interest, specifically neoliberalism and its connections with literature and culture. Part of my dissertation project has to do with tracing the emerging genre of the neoliberal novel, so I created this new group in order to start a more cohesive conversation about what neoliberalism and neoliberal fiction really mean. More details in my first post!

    I invite any and all interested in these topics to join!
