River Semester Project

Which forms of educational practices are apt to challenge traditional forms of academic knowledge production? A presentation on the River Semester project by Joe Underhill


The River Semester project, led by Joe Underhill, investigates the Mississippi as an Anthropocene “object” and explores the lessons, observations, and novel imaginaries that can be gathered from direct encounters with the river. In stepping out of both institutional boundaries as well as common academic practices, the River Semester project puts experiential and immersive approaches to education and knowledge dissemination to the test.
