UWM's Buildings-Landscapes-Cultures Field School joined the Newark-based Humanities Action Lab (HAL). HAL is a coalition of universities, issue organizations, and public spaces that collaborate to produce community-curated public humanities projects on urgent social issues.
HAL's new international initiative brings together over 500 students and issue organizations in 22 communities. Through a traveling exhibit, digital platform, and programming, each will share their stories. They will also exchange strategies to transition from extractive environments to generative ones. The project will launch in Newark, NJ, in October 2019.
