Cohorts, Courses, Qualifications, and Careers: Reconceptualizing the Humanities PhD at Washington University

Thematic convenings that will focus on creating humanities cohorts, designing coursework in line with employment outcomes, and providing post-ABD training and target advising.

The Center for the Humanities plans to fully reconceptualize doctoral training in the humanities at Washington University. Efforts will focus on four core questions: 1) How can we stimulate collaboration among departments to grow inclusive humanities cohorts, from recruitment to completion? 2) What kinds of new curricula would better prepare humanities graduate students for the widest range of career outcomes? 3) What opportunities might be provided in the last year of graduate training to equip students for jobs outside of the academy, particularly in the public sphere? 4) What kinds of new resources might we offer to support the multiple career trajectories of humanities PhDs? A Central Planning Committee of twelve will coordinate the investigations of four Working Groups, each focused a core questions to develop an action plan at the close of the grant period.
