The Humanities at Work is a new series from the Institute for the Humanities that features the variety of careers pursued by Humanities PhDs. Organized as a series of conversations, these one-hour sessions will include a 30-minute informational interview in which the invited guest traces their trajectory, describes the extent to which graduate education prepared them for their current work, identifies things they wish they'd known or explored as a graduate student, and explains the qualifications their organization would seek in an applicant. We'll also ask our guests to describe how the humanities matter in the work they do. The second half of the hour will be devoted to questions from the audience.
