Join us for the next session of the "Communicating Your Research" series, as Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Project Director of the Humanities Commons, provides an introduction to Humanities Commons. She will discuss the history of Humanities Commons and how the Commons allows scholars, in all disciplines, to create a professional profile and share their work. 

This event is presented in partnership with the Global Arts and Humanities Discovery Theme. 

This virtual program will include automated captioning. If you require an accommodation such as live captioning or interpretation to participate in this event, please email as soon as possible. Requests made at least one week prior to the event will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the university will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.
