The Humanities Truck
Collect Reflect Exhibit Preserve
The Humanities Truck is a fully customized delivery truck that serves as an experimental mobile platform for collecting, exhibiting, preserving, and expanding dialogue around the humanities. Using the truck, we seek to mobilize the humanities and democratize the sharing and production of knowledge by bringing together scholars at American University with community residents across Washington, D.C. Together we can collect, create, interpret, and curate stories that can return to the communities they originated from and circulate throughout the metropolitan region.
The Humanities Truck Project began as an idea that was cultivated by one of the Humanities Lab’s very first working groups. Today the Lab and the Truck work closely together to mobilize the humanities at American University and throughout Washington, DC.
