Re-envisioning the Humanities PhD

Four major themes in UNC’s planning work: Careers, Collaboration, Curriculum and Dissertation, and Data. These will be explored both in closed meetings of subcommittees and the larger planning committee, as well as in a series of public conversations. One of the subcommittees will also organize an alumni conference.

"Re-envisioning the Humanities PhD" is a year-long initiative that will constitute UNC-Chapel Hill’s first campus-wide conversation on graduate education in the humanities. To be launched in fall 2016, it will include a series of public discussions, a data collection project, an alumni conference, and a white paper. This application is submitted with the intention that, with the benefit of a Next Generation Humanities PhD Planning Grant, this initiative will lead to far-reaching and much-needed change, and in the process offer a national model of creative, collaborative reform.
