Humanities at Large

Planning at the University of Rhode Island (URI) around four topics: 1) potential approaches to stimulate collaboration between programs, departments, and schools; 2) methods for initiating partnerships with non-academic institutions; 3) exploration of altered formats or requirements for the PhD dissertation; and 4) identification of humanities PhD alumni in various fields to advise or mentor graduate students.  

The University of Rhode Island aims to develop cross-disciplinary and experiential learning for humanities doctoral students in five key areas. As the state's flagship research university and a land and sea grant institution, URI has strong historical commitments to the coastal environment and recently extended to the health fields. The committee aims to secure partnerships, internships, new collaborations, and innovative curricular changes that will prepare doctoral students to expand their career aspirations and to bring the fruits of humanities learning to all aspects of civic life.
