Episode 97: The HUGEmanities with Molly Campbell and Krista Jackman

June 23, 2019

All In with Pauline Hawkins

Molly Campbell and Krista Jackman are UNH Lecturers and have started The HUGEmanities Project, a collaboration between The New Hampshire Humanities Collaborative, and UNH College of Liberal Arts. It is an initiative that highlights the engaged, active thinking and digital humanities work UNH students are doing. We discuss why the humanities are an important field of study, define the humanities through song, and talk about going all in.

Defining the Humanities through song: 1st song: “Strange Fruit” by Billie Holiday 1939; 2nd song: “9 to 5” by Dolly Parton 1980; and 3rd song: “For What it’s Worth” by Buffalo Springfield 1966.

Lorraine Watry

Lorraine Watry is an award-winning Colorado contemporary realist painter of water-scapes, landscapes, and reflective objects. Her art is characterized by bright colors, dramatic light and realistic reflections. I am lucky to have her illustrate my children’s book, You Are Mine, due to be released in the summer of 2019. We talk about teaching art, her numerous awards, a favorite quote, and where she goes from here.

Three songs that would be on the soundtrack of her life: 1st song: “Let the Rain” by Sara Bareilles; 2nd song: “Make ‘Em Laugh” from Singing in the Rain; 3rd song: “Put Your Records On” by Corinne Bailey Rae.
