Please join the PublicsLab for a workshop on transforming doctoral curriculum in the humanities and humanistic social sciences at The Graduate Center for the good of the public. Together, we will consider the promise and potential of doctoral education in the humanities to be both more student-centered and more public facing. We will address the following central question: How can we support graduate students in doing public scholarship and preparing for careers both inside and outside the academy?

This two-hour workshop is required for anyone who intends to apply for an $8,000 Doctoral Curriculum Enhancement Grant* from the PublicsLab, but all Graduate Center faculty in the humanities and humanistic social sciences are invited to register. We will hear from the 2019 and 2020 DCEG recipients about the progress of their projects and consider in detail what changes might be made specifically to the curriculum of a department.

Attendance is free but early registration is recommended. Please reserve your spot by registering via Zoom. If you have any accessibility needs for this event, please email us at

*2021 will be the last round of DCEGs that the PublicsLab will distribute from the current round of Mellon funding.
