Can community college humanities faculty engage in meaningful scholarship amid the workload demands of the teaching-intensive institution? How do they retain or reclaim their scholarly identities at schools that prioritize pedagogy and service over research and publishing? By what means might they expand or reimagine the notion and practice of “legitimate” scholarship within the context of their colleges’ teaching-intensive, access-oriented mission.
During this live, interactive forum--presented by the Community College Humanities Assocation and co-sponsored by MCC's Institute for the Humanities--a panel of accomplished community college faculty members will discuss their respective approaches to both traditional and innovative forms of scholarly production—particularly their integration with pedagogy and curricular development—and examine the challenges and rewards inherent to the work of a humanities teacher-scholar.
