Humanities Without Walls

Pre-doctoral Career Diversity Summer Workshops

Call for Applications

DeadlineNovember 1, 2021

Humanities Without Walls (HWW) is a consortium of humanities centers and institutes at 16 major research universities throughout the Midwest and beyond. Based at the Humanities Research Institute at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), HWW is funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

In summer 2022, the University of Michigan’s Institute for the Humanities will host HWW’s annual summer workshop for doctoral students interested in learning about diverse careers for humanists. Through a series of workshops, talks, and site visits, participants will learn how to imagine possible futures and leverage their skills and humanities training towards careers in the private sector, the nonprofit world, arts administration, public media, and many other fields. Ann Arbor, Michigan will serve as the primary location for workshop activities. The location will provide students with the opportunity to experience the vibrant humanities ecosystem that exists in the region, including Detroit. 

Join us on September 9th to hear our alumni reflect on their experience with HWW and how it has shaped their career trajectories. This roundtable discussion will be followed by a Q&A about the workshop and the application process.
