Engaged Intellectual offers tools for academics and non-academics to engage more directly with each other and with the intellectual and practical questions of today.
This site emerges from two observations:
The skills and voices of intellectuals are increasingly absent from the public conversation and increasingly needed to navigate our moment's complexities.
The painful realities of this moment demand that all of us become actively engaged using our intellectual and other skills (newfound or long-established) to improving our world.
EngagedIntellectual.org is my answer to these observations. Whatever your position, whether a student or an activist, a professor or a librarian, this site seeks to provide resources to be more effective intellectually and to use your intellectual resources to engage more effectively with the world around you.
Over the coming weeks, this site will return with enhanced and updated content, so please check back.
