Humanities faculty, staff, postdoctoral candidates, and graduate students presented their innovative ideas at the 16th annual Keller Center Innovation Forum. Prize winners included:

“Innovation —what the philosopher Ernst Bloch called ‘building into the blue’ —is one of the central  missions of the Humanities Council,” said Esther “Starry” Schor, chair of the Humanities Council, in her opening remarks.

“While the Humanities and Social Science projects being presented today broach very different issues via various methodologies, running through them are themes of access, interaction, and communication,” Schor said. “They remind me that many of us are emerging from the pandemic with a new sense of the power of innovative technology to inform, connect, console and delight.”

The Innovation Forum, which was hosted virtually this year, is hosted by the Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education and was co-sponsored by the Humanities Council and the Office of Technology Licensing.
