Master's Program in Puerto Rican and Caribbean Art History

A series of public lectures and faculty development seminars in anticipation of the creation of a new master's program in Puerto Rican and Caribbean art history.

The Center for Advanced Studies on Puerto Rico and the Caribbean proposes a 2-year grant to strengthen and enrich humanities education and scholarship at the Center, an institution with high Hispanic enrollment, through a new master??s level program in Puerto Rican and Caribbean Art History. NEH resources will provide faculty development seminars to six qualified doctoral faculty members by six leading hemispheric authorities in the field, who will help develop a strong faculty core with a shared body of knowledge in the field; assist in the design and implementation of course contents that are practical, intellectually sound, pertinent to regional and international theory and practice, and responsive to student needs. Moreover, the project will cement strong academic collaborations; develop a supportive scholarship and professional environment; encourage student recruitment; and foster public dissemination of humanities knowledge related to art history.
