Imagining America, a consortium of 85+ universities and colleges supporting the civic and public purposes of the humanities, arts, and design, is hosting its 11th Annual National conference in the Twin Cities, September 22-24. The conference theme, "What Sustains Us?" will engage topics such as the environment, public history, public art and urban design, and community-based research. It will also feature sessions on the role of public scholarship in tenure and promotion; rigor and assessment in public scholarship, and engagement and diversity.
Highlights of the conference, co-hosted by the University of MN and Macalester College are: over 40 workshops, round tables, and seminars; a choice of 13 site visits in MN on campus-community partnerships; plenary sessions by David Scobey (The New School for General Studies and Milano The New School for Management and Urban Policy), Harry Boyte (Augsburg College and the University of MN), and Rose Brewer and Seitu Jones (University of MN).
