TRaCE Report on CMS Graduates’ PhD Experience and Career

In 2016, the Centre of Medieval Studies was chosen as one of three University of Toronto humanities departments to become part of the TRaCE project, a Canada-wide collaborative project involving twenty-five universities. The aim of the project was to collect data on the careers of PhD students in the humanities who graduated between 2004 and 2014, interview them about their past and present professional experiences, and reconnect them to the university.

This research was conducted by Lochin Brouillard, a PhD candidate at the Centre, who compiled the trends emerging from the interviews in the report linked below. Narratives of CMS alumnae and alumni, including Damian Fleming, Victoria Goddard, Helen Marshall, and Connell Monette, have also been published on the TRaCE website. The Centre’s active role in the TRaCE project provides us with the means to pursue our ongoing effort to foster links among all members of our community – graduates, students, faculty members, and research associates.
