Notice: New Graduate Program Relevant To U.S.I.H.

Friends & Colleagues,

I received the notice below through the SHARP listserv. Note the bolded second sentence in the second paragraph. To elaborate further, here’s a line from first “about the program” link below:

The doctoral program permits students to complete the degree in five years: during that time they receive full financial support. They will also have the opportunity to teach their own courses: unlike most other graduate programs, ours does not require students to work as teaching assistants in large lecture classes.

I realize that many of those who follow U.S.I.H. either already hold professorships or are already in graduate programs, but this looks like a program that we can tell our students about.

Incidentally, Jonathan Rose is the author of this fantastic book. If you can read only few books on British intellectual history, I strongly suggest his be on your short list.

The Caspersen School of Graduate Studies at Drew University announces a new MA/PhD program in History and Culture. The program will focus on the intellectual and cultural history of modern Europe and America. The first PhD students will be admitted in 2010, and MA students will be admitted in 2009. More information is available here.

Like its predecessor program in Modern History and Literature, the History and Culture program will include an emphasis on book history. It will also have greater interdisciplinary breadth and will offer more generous financial support to doctoral students.

Prospective students are invited to attend an open house on Thursday, October 30 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm in Mead Hall on the Drew University campus. [See here for more.]

If you have questions about the program, please contact the Convenor, Prof. Jonathan Rose, at [email protected] or 973-408-3545.
