        Subject: Announcing the Praxis Network

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Praxis Network 
(http://praxis-network.org), a new partnership of graduate and undergraduate
programs that emphasize innovative models of methodological training and
collaborative research.

Part of the Scholarly Communication Institute’s current work on rethinking
graduate education (http://uvasci.org/current-work/), the Praxis Network
provides a closer look at selected programs that have taken unusual and
effective approaches to core humanistic methods, while also addressing how
best to equip budding scholar-practitioners for a range of careers. The
goals of each unique program are student-focused, digitally-inflected,
interdisciplinary, and frequently oriented around collaborative projects.

The Praxis Network features graduate programs at the University of
Virginia, Michigan State University, CUNY Graduate Center, University
College London, and Duke University, as well as undergraduate programs at
Hope College and Brock University. The website, which is the first product
of the partnership, takes the important step of sharing information about
the commonalities and unique properties of these programs that are making
effective interventions in the traditional models of humanities pedagogy
and research.

We hope you enjoy exploring the site.

Best regards,
Katina Rogers
