Jiwon Jung on her acceptance to the Dissertation Proposal Development Program, for her project titled Picturing beyond the Boundaries: The Question of Mental Illness Represented in A. Chekhov’s Literary Works. In the Dissertation Proposal Program, faculty actively guide 18 humanities and social science PhD students, who are in their second and third years, in designing effective research questions, methodologies, contexts, and interventions. Participants gain practical, theoretical, and writing insights from experienced faculty and other students outside their disciplines. Throughout this program, students build their professional networks and audiences, benefit from interdisciplinary mentorship, and engage in conversations that lead to innovative dissertation projects.
