Smarty Pants

My PhD candidate wife is so darn smart...She is a PAGE fellow at the National Conference, which will be held later this year at U.S.C. in L.A.

Only, like 7% of those who apply, get it...

What is a PAGE fellow, you say?

The PAGE Institute is held annually at the Imagining America National Conference

What is "Publicly Active Graduate Education"? How does our academic scholarship activate our civic engagement, and vice versa? When theory and practice unite in community-based projects led by graduate students, what are the implications—for graduate students, for the communities involved, and for graduate education?

Every year, Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life invites graduate students in the arts, humanities, and design with a demonstrated interest in public engagement to apply to be PAGE (Publicly Active Graduate Education) Fellows at Imagining America’s national conference.

Report on NYC coming soon!

(We saw two shows, one experimental and the other the new Sam Shepard piece Kicking a Dead Horse)
