Humanities PhDs at Work: Career Paths in Librarianship

September 18, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The CLAS Taskforce on Humanities PhDs invites you to “Humanities PhDs at Work,” a series of fora and workshops designed to inform graduate students about careers in the humanities other than faculty positions. The series features speakers with PhDs in the humanities discussing their jobs, how and why they chose their careers, and how others might prepare for them.  Our first two events are listed below. All events will be videoed and available for viewing.  Please join us.
