        Subject: Ph.D. programme in Interdisciplinary Humanities

   The Faculty of Humanities at Brock University in St. Catharines,
Ontario, Canada is pleased to announce the creation of a Ph.D.
programme in Interdisciplinary Humanities.  This programme has
received approval from both University and Provincial authorities, and
will admit students as of September 2011.

   Brock’s University’s Interdisciplinary Humanities Doctoral Program
provides students with a focused context in which to engage with
topics integral to the contested notions of knowledge, values and
creativity as reflected in the specific fields of Ways of Knowing
(Epistemologies), Critique and Social Transformation, Culture and
Aesthetics and Digital Humanities.

   The programme is committed to providing a rigourous
interdisciplinary environment that nurtures scholarly and creative
activity. Such endeavours aim to investigate the past as well
influence the ways in which reflection and creation contribute to the
further unfolding of society in the future.

   Students pursuing Brock University’s Interdisciplinary Doctoral
Humanities Programme will have the opportunity to collaborate across
disciplines and to associate with wider communities of inquiry. Upon
completion of the program, individuals will be prepared for continued
research and teaching, or for professions requiring abilities in
disciplined study, critical discernment, and robust application of
creative insight.

    Those interested in applying to the programme, or receiving more
information, should contact Dr. Carol Merriam, Associate Dean for
Graduate Studies and Research, Faculty of Humanities, Brock
University.  E-mail:  merriamc at brocku.ca ; telephone: (905) 688-5550
