Interdisciplinary Humanistic Studies (IHS) Information Session for 2024 applicants

November 7, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

On Tuesday, November 7th at 3:30 PM, there will be a Zoom information session and presentation about the Ph.D. program in Interdisciplinary Humanistic Studies (IHS). This program offers students the opportunity to create an interdisciplinary doctoral program of their own design, within set guidelines. Students work with faculty advisors from two different Ph.D. fields, one of which must be humanistic, to create a custom program that combines the methods, resources, and requirements of these two fields; on this basis, they develop and carry out their specific interdisciplinary course of study and research.  The program is administered by the Alexander Grass Humanities Institute.  Applications for Fall 2024 entry are due Feb. 15, 2024. More information on the Ph.D. in IHS program can be found here.

The information session on November 7th will feature Professor Ian Phillips of Philosophy and Cognitive Science, who will talk about what it is like to do interdisciplinary research bridging two disciplines; and also Rui Zhe Goh, a second-year Ph.D. student in the IHS program, whose project bridges Psychology and Philosophy. Rui Zhe will talk about his experiences as a pioneer in this new program.  There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions about the program and the kind of research it aims to support. If you are not available to attend this information session but are interested in learning more about the program, please contact Prof. Egginton at [email protected].

*After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
