According to Leonard Cassuto, it is no secret that American graduate education is in disarray. Graduate students take too long to complete their studies and face a dismal academic job market if they succeed. His book, The Graduate School Mess, gets to the root of these problems and offers concrete solutions for revitalizing graduate education in the humanities. Cassuto, Professor of English at Fordham University and graduate education columnist for The Chronicle of Higher Education, argues that universities’ heavy emphasis on research comes at the expense of teaching. But teaching is where reforming graduate school must begin. In his talk, Professor Cassuto will attempt to return our national conversation about graduate study in the humanities to first principles.

This event is free and open to the public.

Presented by the Department of History with support from the Rackham Graduate School, Institute for the Humanities, Department of English Language and Literature, and Department of American Culture.
