MLA Public Humanities Incubator

About the Public Humanities Incubator

In the summer of 2022, graduate students with an interest in contributing to public humanities scholarship were invited to participate in the inaugural Modern Language Association Public Humanities Incubator.

Twelve participants were selected for the 2022 program and were placed in teams of four with mentors active in the public humanities. Over the course of the incubator, from October to December, teams will work with their mentors to envision their research as contributions to public humanities scholarship: imagining audiences and impact, form and dissemination, collaboration and partnerships, and project life cycle.

Public Humanities Incubator participants and their mentors will present their projects at the 2023 MLA convention in San Francisco. Learn more about the participants and their projects.
