The English Department here at UNM, along with the Departments of American Studies, History and Linguistics, has been chosen by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to rethink and transform the training and education for the “next generation” of humanities doctoral students.

From this endowment, UNM received $25,000 to support and expand efforts that are already underway, but, as part of the agreement to receive the funds, UNM is required to raise matching funds as a sign of their commitment. The UNM initiative titled, “LoboHUB(Humanities Unbound): Planning for the Next Generation of Humanities Scholars at UNM” will bring together the humanities  disciplines, Graduate Studies, alumni networks and professional communities in order to discuss how to transform existing doctoral programs into education models that prepare humanities scholars for careers in many different professions—both inside and outside academia.
