Career Diversity Workshop


These workshops showcase opportunities beyond the walls of the academy and encourage humanities doctoral students to think of themselves as agents of the public humanities. In summer 2019, HWW is holding its second national, in-residence summer workshop for doctoral students interested in learning about careers outside of the academy and/or the tenure track system.

Humanities Without Walls is a consortium of humanities centers and institutes at 15 major research universities throughout the Midwest and beyond. Based at the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the consortium is funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

2019 Summer Workshop


Deepthi Murali

We are delighted to congratulate the UIC Graduate Student selected to participate in the Career Diversity Summer Workshops sponsored by the Humanities Without Walls Consortium.

Deepthi Murali, Art History Department, will join a cohort of thirty graduate students for a three-week program during summer 2019. The workshop will feature intensive discussions with representatives of public humanities programs, university presses, learned societies, and digital humanities projects. The fifth year of Humanities Without Walls Pre-Doctoral Career Diversity workshops continues to represent a broadened vision of life in the humanities and serve as a cross-disciplinary engine for the potential reorganization of graduate programs.
