Public Pedagogies: Graduate Education and the Interdisciplinary Humanities at Lehigh University

Planning at Lehigh around five topics: 1) integrating multiple career outcomes into the curriculum; 2) collaborations with entities on and off campus; 3) offering non-teaching-focused financial support systems for students; 4) alumni-oriented mentoring programs; and 5) alternative formats and requirements for the dissertation. 

The humanities graduate programs at Lehigh University (Lehigh) seek to foster doctoral recipients’ potential to contribute to public pedagogies within and beyond the university. With the support of a NEH Next Generation Ph.D. Planning Grant, we will strengthen interdisciplinary collaborations to enhance public-facing curricular and professional opportunities and create a network of internal and external partners to serve our students’ varied ambitions. Our core and consulting committees will explore three areas: reciprocal partnerships within and beyond the university to shape curricular and co-curricular activities; a mentorship network comprised of alumni and community partners, including the development of a joint advisory council for the History and English Ph.D. programs; and new models for the doctoral dissertation.
