  • Check out the results of our course development project!
    August 15, 2016

    In the Spring semester, we gathered a group of 9 faculty members from DC area universities who re-designed their existing graduate course to connect scholarly training with preparing graduate students for public engagement and non-academic intellectual work. The group's work culminated in a poster session at Georgetown's Annual Teaching, Learning & Innovation Summer Institute in May 2016, where the group members presented their re-designed courses. You can find these posters on our Course Development page. There, you can also find video interviews with some of the participants of the event.

  • Developing a PhD Program in Interdisciplinary Humanities and Public Humanities
    December 18, 2015

    We are seeking faculty to participate in the development of a new PhD program in Interdisciplinary Humanities and Public Humanities under the auspices of the Graduate School. We will be meeting monthly during the spring semester to produce a detailed proposal for this new doctoral program. We are hoping to involve the traditional humanities disciplines, but also disciplines outside the humanities, in the sciences and social sciences. If you like to contribute to this project, please contact Kathryn Temple at templek@georgetown.edu no later than January 5, 2016.
