TRaCE, headquartered at Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, McGill University, is a national project dedicated to (1) collecting data about the career pathways of PhD graduates in Humanities, Social Sciences, and Fine Arts; (2) telling the stories of those PhD graduates; and (3) building community and sponsoring exchanges of knowledge and knowhow among grads (no matter where their pathways have taken them), PhD students, and faculty.
TRaCE is the first PhD tracking project in the world to combine data collection and large-scale narrative knowledge gathering. More information about the TRaCE project background can be found on the white paper on PhD humanities located here.
