THIS POST APPEARS IN FULL ON humanitiesafterhollywood.org, THE WORK-IN-PROGRESS BLOG WRITTEN BY MARK GARRETT COOPER AND JOHN MARX. (The embedding of maps in the original post makes it difficult to port over to the MLA Commons, but we invite you to visit our blog to see where humanities PhDs are made.)
While you’ve been convening your think tank, I’ve been engaged in a secret project. Surprise!
Did you ever wonder where (in the US) humanities PhDs are made?
Turns out English PhDs are made everywhere, which comes as little surprise–although a major caveat about what that means exactly below.
Less self-evidently, the maps I’ve generated reveal something of the way universities have been distinguishing themselves by supporting additional PhD programs, such as Film Studies, Religion, and Rhetoric.
