Resources, strategies and ideas to connect all students to the humanities

Through workshops, retreats, and immersive trips, participants experience our approach and core values firsthand. Rigorous humanities content is complemented by activities that develop into practical strategies.

This workshop introduces the core strategies and concepts of the Minnesota Humanities Center’s approach to community engagement through absent narratives — those voices or stories often left out or marginalized.
