Going Public: Reimagining the PhD

Going Public: Reimagining the PhD

Welcome to Going Public, a podcast dedicated to exploring public scholarship and publicly-engaged teaching in the humanities. Since 2015, two successive Andrew W. Mellon funded grant initiatives under the name "Reimagining the Humanities PhD and Reaching New Publics: Catalyzing Collaboration" have supported public scholars at the University of Washington. The episodes of Going Public consist of interviews with Mellon-supported public scholars after they have launched their projects or taught their public-facing seminars.
