Humanities in the Wild is presented by the the Hall Center for the Humanities, eXplore Lawrence, Sunflower Outdoor & Bike Shop, the KU Office of the Provost, the Departments of Communication Studies, History, and African and African-American Studies, and The Commons.

What compels today’s farmers?

New Farmers highlights the hope, creativity, endurance, and possibility that motivates new and emerging farmers and inspires the various futures they work toward.

An interdisciplinary research project that began in 2014, New Farmers features the stories of many area first-generation farmers. The work has appeared in art museums, been shared at conferences internationally, and now exists as a book. It showcases the photography of D. Bryon Darby, design by Tim Hossler, and interviews by Paul Stock.

At this event, collaborators Tim Hossler (Associate Professor of Design) and Paul Stock (Associate Professor of Sociology and the Environmental Studies Program) will share their working methodology, stories from the field, and some of the trials, tribulations, and opportunities of collaborating across disciplines.
