Our symposium, “Re-Shaping the Future of Graduate Education in the Humanities,” aims to create a space where students, faculty, and administrators will engage in scholarly conversations and research initiatives that will 1) contribute to developing a graduate educational experience that allows for more networking opportunities between graduate students and potential employers 2) re-build PhD programs that contribute to society in ways that push the boundaries of the customary career track for graduates.

The symposium will include discussions by plenary speakers from multiple disciplines to include History, Anthropology, Women’s and Gender Studies, Philosophy, English, among others. In addition, we will hold various workshops and roundtable sessions that focus on job placement, grad activism, publishing, digital humanities, dissertation development, comprehensive exam evaluation, and curriculum planning.
