Is the traditional comprehensive exam still the best way to prepare and assess doctoral students in the humanities and qualitative social sciences? Join graduate faculty Phil Stern (History), Roberto Dainotto (Romance Studies), and Diane Nelson (Cultural Anthropology) for a lively lunchtime conversation about the advantages and potential challenges of incorporating portfolios into doctoral candidacy requirements. Graduate students Eliza Borque Dandridge (Romance Studies) and Ashley Rose Young (History) will discuss their experiences with innovative models and share examples of portfolio work with attendees.

Lunch will be provided. Faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates all warmly welcome.

This event is part of The Graduate School’s Teaching IDEAS Series and is sponsored by the Franklin Humanities Institute, the Office of the Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies, and The Graduate School
