When and How to Recruit Arts and Humanities Students: Field Observations

A workshop with David Wilson, D.M.A. Vocal Arts (Stanford PhD student, musicology)

What encourages students to explore the arts and humanities? When and why do students decide they are not "that kind of student"? How do we make humanities and the arts appealing courses of study in high school and college? Join us for a conversation with David Wilson, academic and vocal arts performer and instructor. Participants are encouraged to speak from their own disciplinary perspectives in this open workshop as we consider possibilities for increased and collaborative recruitment. 
 
 

Discussion will be based on a presentation of Wilson's experiences as well as two brief readings*, which consider music education. (Please note that the Evans article focuses on 14- to 19-year-olds in the British educational system.) We welcome participants to consider commonalities and differences between the points raised in the readings and their own disciplinary experiences.
