For humanities scholars and researchers interested in the intersection of art and the public sphere, Public: A Journal of Imagining America is a "peer-reviewed, multimedia e-journal focused on humanities, arts, and design in public life." Launched in 2013, the journal is a publication of Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life, which is a consortium of colleges and universities that seek to promote publicly engaged scholarship. As of 2017, the journal was edited by faculty and staff at Syracuse University and the Syracuse University Press. The most recent issue of the journal is based around the theme "Digital Engagements." The issue features an article by Elena Foulis, a scholar of Spanish and Portuguese at The Ohio State University, about her digital oral history project Latin@ Stories Across Ohio and an article by Elizabeth Rush, a writer and Mellon Fellow who recently taught at Bates College, about creating a "collaborative digital archive" that documents climate change in Maine. Readers can browse past issues of this journal via two helpful data visualizations that are available from the explore the archive tab. These visualizations allow readers to locate articles of interest by using criteria such as keyword, geographic coverage, author affiliations.
