The Humanities Without Walls (HWW) Consortium is pleased to announce the 2018 Alternative Academic Career Summer Workshops for Pre-Doctoral Students in the Humanities call for applications is now available at the HWW website.
This workshop encourages humanities doctoral students to think of themselves as agents of the public humanities and showcases opportunities beyond the walls of the academy in an uncertain academic job climate. The workshop is organized by, and presented in partnership with, the Chicago Humanities Festival.
We invite applications for fellowships from pre-doctoral students to participate in a three-week intensive, residential summer workshop for individuals who are working towards but have not yet received a PhD in a humanities discipline, and who plan to continue their degree programs while also considering careers outside the academy and/or the tenure-track university system.
Applications due: November 1, 2017
Applications and letters of recommendation should be submitted to the UIC Institute for the Humanities, firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
