UBC-V’s Public Humanities Hub is keen to collaborate with other units at UBC and partnerships beyond.

The UBC-V Public Humanities Hub collaborates each year with the UBC-Okanagan Public Humanities Hub through an annual speaker exchange. This year, we will host UBC-Okanagan Environmental Humanist and Artist Aleksandra Dulic. We are also collaborating with the UBC-Okanagan Public Humanities Hub to organize “Human Matters: Engaging Publics in the Humanities” conference in Kelowna July 8-11, 2020.

The Public Humanities Hub has just begun to develop community partnerships. If you are a UBC Humanities researcher already collaborating with a community partner, please let us know how the Hub can support your collaboration. If you are a community organization interested in establishing a partnership with the Public Humanities Hub—perhaps to co-sponsor an event, engage in a joint research project, etc, please let us know.
