Engaging Humanities

A message from Dr. Linda Adler-Kassner, Director of Mellon Engaging Humanities:

This course is part of Mellon Engaging Humanities, an initiative that (among other things) supports innovative courses in the humanities and fine arts at UCSB:


We’re happy to have you on board! We encourage you to make the most of the resources available. While your instructors will have the best advice on the course and its content, myself and Dr. Elina Salminen will also hold Mellon Engaging Humanities “office hours” every Monday 2-3:30pm at CITRAL (Center for Innovative Teaching, Research, and Learning, 1576 UCSB Library – first floor, Ocean side). We encourage you to come in for a chat, to ask any questions you might have about humanities and fine arts, and for help with your e-portfolio. You can also always email or call us:

Dr. Adler-Kassner: 805-893-6135, ladler@ucsb.edu

Dr. Salminen: 805-893-6136, salminen@ucsb.edu

We look forward to working and learning with you!
