The Transferable PhD (2016): Converting Academic Skills into Broad Career Paths

April 2, 2016 — The National Humanities Center

This conference, organized by graduate students from UNC Chapel Hill and Duke University, focuses on alternative career options for people with a PhD. in Humanities.

The speakers we have invited this year all hold a PhD. in Humanities and now work in a variety of different fields, ranging from the non-profit world, to government positions, publishing, the business world and teaching positions outside of academia. We have further put together a panel that will talk about the future of the field of humanities, and a panel that will discuss the options for popularizing your academic knowledge.

The conference will be concluded by a 45 minute keynote delivered by Leonard Cassuto, author of “The Graduate School Mess”.

The conference is free, and involved participants from a wide range of humanities backgrounds. PhD students and candidates looking to broaden their career paths are encouraged to attend and engage in the vibrant discussions about their futures and the future of graduate training.
