PhD grads driving change by telling their stories
Led by an international team of collaborators and graduate student researchers, TRaCE Transborder will not only gather statistical information on thousands of PhD graduates, but also interview them. TRaCE Transborder’s narrative methodology will show how a doctoral degree can lead to a multiplicity of successful, socially valuable, and personally fulfilling careers both inside and outside academia.
