Build Something Together: A Part of a Science+Humanities Curriculum

Lytton Smith, Asst. Prof. of English/Creative Writing, proposes a session aimed at creating a curricular component – be it a lesson plan, an assignment, a one-off lab – that integrates specific science and humanities methodologies and knowledge. We can both draw on existing expertise, such as the way GIS is used in English and Geology, among other areas, and imagine new sites for such co-disciplinary work: what does historical objectivity share with biological objectivity or the creative in creative writing with the hypothetical in a hypothesis? The hope is to get beyond rhetorical overlaps to better implement the similarities within difference when it comes to STEM or STEAM plus Humanities.
