An innovative digital humanities training program for graduate students at the University of Virginia has helped spawn a new international network of programs that prepare humanities students for careers within and beyond the traditional academic job market.
The Praxis Network, which debuted last week, consists of graduate and undergraduate programs at several colleges and universities, each of which embraces new models of methodological training and collaborative research.
The network includes U.Va.’s Praxis Program, administered by the Scholars’ Lab in the U.Va. Library, as well as graduate programs at the City University of New York Graduate Center, Duke University, Michigan State University and University College London. It also includes undergraduate programs at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ont., and Hope College in Holland, Mich.
