Crossroads: The Future of Graduate History Education
March 11 – 12, 2016
Mead Hall, Drew University, Madison, NJ
In an effort to address growing economic concerns and a shift away from the humanities, history professionals are beginning to discuss the development of innovative, distinctive and utilitarian history programs. The goals of these 21st century history programs are to train students for both academic and non academic careers and rethink the traditional graduate history curriculum at the MA and PhD levels. In 2009, Drew University reformulated its graduate history program and developed History & Culture to adapt to these circumstances. Our hope in organizing and assembling this conference is to contribute to the growing discussion about the changing expectations in the discipline, in order to address the challenges we face and move beyond.
Keynote speakers: Leonard Cassuto of Fordham University and Robert Townsend of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
