UC Santa Cruz Next Generation Humanities PhD Planning Grant

Thematic convenings at the University of California, Santa Cruz to expand mentoring relationships for graduate students, curricular changes toward trans-disciplinary courses, and development of internship opportunities. Project goals include expanded public sphere for humanities doctoral expertise, reorganization of doctoral programs to expand opportunities, and the identification of elements of doctoral programs that require change to meet the goals.

UC Santa Cruz's Next Generation Humanities PhD planning grant will facilitate planning for transformative changes in humanistic doctoral training and post-doctoral career paths. We aim to envision a new, expanded public sphere for humanities doctoral expertise and plan doctoral program change to cultivate expanded opportunities to translate doctoral experience into public impact. We will articulate a multi-dimensional mentorship model, coordinated around a humanities-oriented Individual Development Plan process; develop a set of skill modules relevant to expanded humanities career paths, and consider how to integrate them into doctoral program curricula and degree requirements; and expand tracking, networking, and experiential learning opportunities for humanities doctoral students.
