Digital and Public Humanities Project, 2015 Recipient of the University Award for Excellence in Collaborative Achievement

Assoc. Prof., Humanistic Studies Caroline Boswell
Assoc. Prof., Humanistic Studies Chuck Rybak

The Digital and Public Humanities Project began with the creation of a “digital commons” at UW-Green Bay to expand opportunities for exploring ancient and modern languages, literature, philosophy, religion, history and the visual and performing arts.

Historian Caroline Boswell and Chuck Rybak, who teaches English and creative writing, are leaders in adapting new methods in making the humanities come alive for modern learners. Their project helps students avail themselves of new digital technologies and advance their skill sets while also making the field more accessible to the public at large.
 
Boswell joined UW-Green Bay in 2008 after earning her Ph.D. at Brown University. Rybak is a widely published poet who began his UW System career after receiving his doctorate from the University of Cincinnati in 2003.
