Eligible applicants include: These are research groups of not more than three (3) scholars, at least one of whom must NOT have a full time job.The member in charge of the proposed research project must hold a Ph D.
The initiative is committed to a thoroughly interdisciplinary and collaborative presentation of ideas.
The format for these presentations will be visually interesting in order to help “translate” the topics to a broad audience.
The student's supervisory committee, in collaboration with the Humanities Director, must assess and approve the nature of the relationship between the thesis components and the pertinence of the chosen medium.
The committee must establish the student's competence to work with the chosen medium.
For full-time research this will be 3-4 years and for part-time 7-8 years.
If relevant, you should also outline the kind of materials you will work with, what you are going to make and/or create, and how they connect.
If a student fails the thesis proposal defence, he or she may request a second (and last) attempt, the repeated defence to take place after a period of at least three months from the date of the original defence, and no later than one year after the date of the original defence.
Please note the Humanities Ph D program changed some sections of its curriculum in 2017.
The objectives are the specific, reliable outcomes you will achieve.
Throughout the proposal you need to demonstrate an awareness of the academic literature around the project itself and the question you have set; this means defining the intellectual landscape that you want to work and intervene within.
