We are very pleased to announce two UIC Graduate Students selected to participate in the Alternative Academic Career Summer Workshops for Pre-doctoral Students sponsored by the Humanities Without Walls Consortium.
Congratulations to Kei Hotoda, Department of Philosophy, and Tyler Miller, Department of History. They will join a cohort of thirty graduate students from midwest universities for a three-week program during summer 2015. The workshop will feature intensive discussions with representatives of public humanities programs, university presses, learned societies, and digital humanities projects. The inaugural Humanities Without Walls Pre-Doctoral workshops are designed to represent a broadened vision of life in the humanities and serve as a cross-disciplinary engine for the potential reorganization of graduate programs.
A second round of Pre-Doctoral Fellows will be selected for participation in a summer 2016 workshop. Applications will be due in the UIC Institute for the Humanities on December 1, 2015. Please watch for announcements about this competition.
