Public scholarship is research-based work intended for audiences beyond the university. At its best, public scholarship bridges the gap between scholarly expertise and the public’s desire to better understand current events. Public scholarship of religion and philosophy, for instance, provides important textual, cultural, and historical context for pressing issues like healthcare legislation, climate change, and immigration reform. If you haven’t studied religion and philosophy, it’s not immediately clear how these topics help shape these conversations. Public scholarship presents academic research and teaching in readable but nuanced ways, helping non-experts better understand the most crucial challenges facing our increasingly global community.
