Border Culture in the Classroom and the Public Square

An eighteen-month interdisciplinary project on border culture for faculty, students, and community, incorporating curriculum development, enhancement of writing skills, and a public dialog program.

The Desert Vista Campus of Pima Community College proposes an 18 month interdisciplinary humanities project. Our project entitled, The Common Good: The Humanities in the Public Square, Theme: Border Culture has three components: 1)teachers/scholars will develop new curriculum and teach within the interdisciplinary cohorts; 2) two semesters of piloting the three interdisciplinary courses that bring together writing and reading, writing and history, and writing and art. 3) development of a Public Dialogue Program on the Desert Vista Campus which will serve as an active dissemination site to showcase student work, and further provide a space for dialogue among and between the campus and the surrounding community and neighborhoods. These three components bring the work in humanities courses into a direct relationship with work beyond the academic setting and provide our teachers, students, and the larger community with a way to understand our unique experience at the border.
