SPOTLIGHT is the official blog of PATHS (Professional Advancement and Training for Humanities Scholars), an NEH-funded effort to prepare UChicago Ph.D. students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences for careers that make an impact in the world.

The blog features alumni and current Ph.D. students from across all humanities and several social science departments at UChicago.  Blog entries highlight the career trajectories of alumni, the professional experiences of current doctoral students, or student reflections on PATHS events and programs.

SPOTLIGHT is administered by graduate student participants in the PATHS program.  Interested in writing an entry?  Please contact
