The Humanities Truck: “Downtown Displaced”
The Humanities Truck is a fully customized delivery truck that serves as an experimental mobile platform for collecting, exhibiting, preserving, and expanding dialogue around the humanities. The truck project, founded by American University’s Public History program, seeks to mobilize the humanities and democratize the sharing and production of knowledge by bringing together scholars at American University with community residents across Washington, D.C. Working with community partners, the project seeks to co-create, co-interpret, and co-curate stories that can return to the communities they originated from and circulate throughout the metropolitan region. During the 2020 OAH Annual Meeting, the truck will present the exhibit, “Downtown Displaced,” that was produced in collaboration with Street Sense Media, an organization which seeks to spotlight solutions to homelessness.
The truck will be located at the Main Entrance of the hotel during Exhibit Hall hours beginning on Friday, April 3 through Saturday, April 4.
In the Exhibit Hall, Humanities Truck fellows will present materials from the range of projects that we have worked on since the founding of the truck in August 2018. These include, among others, The Historic African River Road Project, Invisible Hands: Jornaleros / Manos Invisibles: Day Laborers, Community Snapshots: Shepherd Park, Finding Reno City, Meridian Hill National Historical Park Oral History Project, and Downtown Displaced.
