PhDs wanted: Valuing deep training in the humanities (Article)
Title: PhDs wanted: Valuing deep training in the humanities
Author: Suzanne T. Ortega
Abstract: The number of academic positions posted by humanities disciplinary associations has decreased overall. This news of the continued sluggishness of the academic job market is only distressing, however, if we believe that the single possible or appropriate professional pathway for humanities PhDs is the professoriate. There is no reason to accept this view as reality when the limited available evidence suggests that a wide range of rewarding careers are possible. As William D. Adams, former chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, has said, humanities doctorate holders have much to contribute to American society.1 And yet, PhD students continue to be told, often explicitly, that the only definition of success is a tenure-track professorship at a high-intensive research university. The Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) has been working with its member institutions on a variety of strategies designed to change this narrative in favor of one that better reflects the breadth of skills and contributions of humanists who hold PhDs.
