Poetry in Place intimately connects Harrisburg public school students and community residents to their city. Each workshop includes a field trip to a local place of significance and a time for creative reflection and writing. Every event focuses on the cultural, historical and ecological roots of the Harrisburg region.
The Center for Public Humanities Fellows program encourages Messiah College students and faculty to focus their scholarship and reflection on compelling public humanities projects and topics beyond the classroom. Composed of students and faculty who have distinguished themselves through academic, service and leadership excellence, the Fellows participate in collaborative, interdisciplinary projects that connect the School of the Humanities to community partners in Harrisburg.
