Mary Helen WashingtonMary Helen talks about her life-long interest in African American writers and political radicalism in the 1950s, and offers an insightful commentary on what forms and directions research in the arts and humanities can take. Worldwise Insights asks prominent scholars to speak directly into the camera and share perspectives on a wide range of research influences and experiences in first-person, documentary style video portraits. This inspiring series of observations on the systematic investigation into existing or new knowledge helps illuminate the research of eight scholars engaged in humanistic discovery: conducting research, reviewing literature, observing people, teaching classes and mentoring the next generation of humanists. These videos help personify faculty in the College of Arts and Humanities, exemplify research topics investigated and tools used by humanist to produce knowledge, and remind the public of the long-term impact of artistic and humanistic research.
