Year of Funding:

This Next Generation Humanities PhD program coordinates efforts across six modern-language departments to intelligently revamp their PhD programs on a scale that is appropriate for each, but from which all can benefit. Support from the Simpson Center allows us to respond to the current predicament of graduate studies in the modern foreign languages by providing space, time, and expertise to examine best options for graduate-student cohort creation, curricular collaboration, and resource sharing. We do so in light of the current and likely demands of the academic, “alt-ac” (e.g., museums, educational non-profits), and non-academic job markets that our graduate students will encounter.
