Is a humanities degree valued?... the age-old question by pragmatists in academe and society with exponential literature to debate the question. This workshop begins with a brief introduction of a humanities-based graduate curriculum in interdisciplinary areas (e.g., history, religion, literature, creativity, human rights, global culture, and science). The workshop then introduces material to apply humanities-based scholarship for societal impact through a new graduate course, Human-Centered Leadership Across Sectors, recently taught to doctor and master of liberal studies students in the United States. Specifically, the philosophies and demonstrations of leadership explore the intersections of humanities-based inquiry with applied scholarship related to human-centered leaders, leadership ethics, organizational culture, societal impacts, and applications for leaders and the organizations they serve. An examination of recent works includes contemporary human-centered leadership scholarship in theory and practice such as Humanise by Howard (2015), Humanocracy by Hamel and Zanini (2020), Convergence: Technology, Business, and the Human-Centric Future by Westphal (2021), and The Superhumanities: Historical Precedents, Moral Objections, New Realities by Kripal (2022). The workshop then examines humanities-based, international dissertation case studies situated in Asia, Africa, and the Americas to demonstrate novel applications of societal impact in a variety of sectors: business, government, religion, and non-profit entities within the community. To conclude, a framework adapted from Howard will provide an opportunity for attendees to examine relevant humanities-based applications academically and in practice based on their interests.
