Interpreting the World

Public Humanities and the Arts

SJSU fosters a culture of engagement where our artists and humanities scholars share their interpretation with the world through both public dissemination and collaboration with our communities. The goals include creating a living understanding of unique cultures and heritages, developing platforms for public displays of heritage and narrative, and being responsive to the lives of those we interact with. 

Deep Humanities / Ethical Technology

SJSU is at the forefront of ensuring that technologies develop ethically, seeking to correct past lineages of discriminiation at the foundation of many technological innovations. Through the integration of humanities and arts faculty into the design process and through engaging in interdisciplinary critiques, SJSU is creating opportunities to help technology and innovation to realize its emancipatory potential.
