University of Cincinnati Next Generation Humanities PhD Planning Grant

Planning activities at the University of Cincinnati including thematic convenings to facilitate interdisciplinary discussions and creation of a shared curriculum, internships in and outside the university, and preparation for non-academic posts.

The principal activities of our planning process include facilitating interdisciplinary discussions to determine the desirability and feasibility of creating a shared curriculum to help our graduates push the humanities into the broader public, through employment in what can be called the public humanities or within corporations. We anticipate this shared curriculum will have room for internships and will emphasize mentoring from within humanities departments and from humanities professionals outside the university. An important dimension of our planning effort will be a series of guest appearances in an open colloquium on topics related to humanities outside the academy, ranging from project management to the digital production of humanities programs.
