The Value of Humanities in the Global City: Rethinking Culture and Opportunity in Detroit

A planning process at Wayne State University that builds faculty buy-in for rethinking graduate education by creating a cohort of “Next Generation Faculty Fellows.” 

The Wayne State NEH Planning Grant will build faculty support for rethinking the future of graduate education in the Humanities and train faculty to become mentors for the Next Generation of Humanities PhDs. A series of workshops on six central topics will bring members of Wayne State faculty into public dialogue and enhance knowledge of new scholarship and best practices. Focus groups will provide data needed to inform the planning committee of faculty and other stakeholder group opinions throughout the planning cycle.
