UCHRI California Humanities Scholars


The purpose of the California Humanities Scholars Program is to recognize graduate students working across the broad range of humanities at the University of California and to use their collective expertise, interests and collaborative energy to create a dynamic and interactive virtual network. California Humanities Scholars are “Citizen Journalists,” reporting on the work happening on their campuses and in their various communities by blogging, tweeting, vlogging, podcasting and other forms of online networking. The California Humanities Scholars will orchestrate a regular discussion forum on the UC Humanities Network website (about to be launched). Open to all, these forums will offer insights and exchanges on a broad range of issues related to the humanities.
