"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until August 2, 2022
LOS ANGELES–Humanities in Los Angeles presents an experiential course for public high school students. The spring class is called, Humanities in Los Angeles: Healing and the Humanities. We bring a cohort of Los Angeles public high school students together with teaching faculty for an 6-week class of coursework and field experiences designed to excite learners about humanities study and prepare students for college. Together, we study the humanities as a wellspring of fresh ideas, creativity, intellectual inquiry, protest, advocacy, and energized dialogue. Students will build skills and confidence as critical and imaginative thinkers ready to succeed in college classrooms. With field trips and invited guests, we learn from scholars, artists, activists and community leaders thinking about the role of the humanities in individual and public life. All of our experiential learning is grounded in interdisciplinary humanities study that includes literature, philosophy, history, arts, critical theory and praxis. The class will end with a public celebration and presentation of student work. The class is free. All supplies are provided by Humanities in the City.
