IGHERT – Integrative Graduate Humanities Education and Research Training


IGHERT banner

About the Project

The CHCI/IGHERT project, on the pilot theme of “Indigeneity in an Expanded Field,” involves both a set of structured research investigations and cross-institutional collaborations on this specific theme and a test of the IGHERT (Integrative Graduate Humanities Education and Research Training) framework that may eventually be utilized by other teams with other themes.

This dual focus—thematically specific for the pilot and structurally generic for the training framework—is a feature of the IGHERT project that distinguishes it from other CHCI-Mellon projects with a primarily thematic focus.
