International Exchange and Cooperation

Graduate students are highly encouraged to study and undertake research abroad as part of preparing their dissertation. A member of the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes, the Humanities Center maintains exchange programs with a number of schools and programs and regularly welcomes scholars and students from institutions all over the world. The Center also participates in a number of international research networks.

École normale supérieure, Paris

School of Criticism and Theory

Sponsored by a consortium of major universities in the US and abroad, the School of Criticism and Theory is a summer institute focusing on key conceptual issues and current debates across the humanities and social sciences. Every year, several graduate students and faculty in the humanities at Johns Hopkins participate in the SCT, which is currently being directed by Prof. de Vries.
