HAA Contributes to Humanities Engage Symposium

Alum Kylie Seltzer (PhD 2020) and Alex Taylor are among the speakers for the upcoming Humanities Engage symposium (September 13-14, 2022).

Dr. Kylie Seltzer (she/her) is a researcher, educator, and community builder whose work focuses on dismantling white supremacy and creating a more just world. As the Research Strategist at Common Cause Consultants, she synthesizes qualitative and quantitative data to find equitable solutions for communities, nonprofits, and foundations. An award-winning scholar and teacher, she uses her humanistic training and expertise to solve the urgent inequities that plague Pittsburgh’s residents.

Humanities Engage fosters a culture change in how arts and humanities departments, faculty, and doctoral students in the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences envisage the broader importance of humanities Ph.D.s and the societal impact of humanistic training. This project was developed with generous support from the Mellon Foundation. Explore the symposium program at the Humanities Engage website
