Reimagining the Humanities PhD and Reaching New Publics
Over the course of two generous grants from The Mellon Foundation spanning from 2015-2022, the Simpson Center for the Humanities has built programming and partnerships that have transformed doctoral education in the humanities at UW. The Reimagining the Humanities PhD and Reaching New Publics program implemented the conviction that doctoral education, especially at a public university, must be guided by a capacious vision of its fundamental purpose: to contribute to the public good. In this digital showcase, we highlight the work of our faculty, who received fellowships to develop publicly engaged graduate courses, and doctoral students, who were awarded support to pursue independent projects in public scholarship in their fields.
