How viable is the traditional model of graduate education in the humanities and social sciences? Is our approach to graduate education an ethical one? What must change, and where must it change, in order for us to be truly attendant to the crisis in graduate education and its relationship to the larger crisis in higher education? What strategies can we begin to implement immediately, and how can we conceive of transformative graduate education in the long term?
