What’s next for AMST@IUPUI? 


On February 22, 2017, the American Studies program at IUPUI hosted a reception and conversation among faculty, students, and community members at the Max Kade room of the historic Athenaeum in downtown Indianapolis. The event introduced the first cohor of doctoral students to IUPUI faculty, Indianapolis community members, and potential students. The program reimagines Ph.D. training by linking research in the humanities and social sciences to issues in communities both inside and outside Indy. In other words, this is an applied Ph.D. program, rather than one that seeks to train new faculty for university jobs.
