Building Skills to Navigate the Permeable Academy

Saturday, January 5, 2019: 4:30 PM
Spire Parlor (Palmer House Hilton)
Tania Munz, National Humanities Center
Tania Munz will discuss career-diversity training that can help graduate students and PhDs envision career options in and outside the academy and prepare them for leadership roles in the humanities. She will speak to specific programming she’s helped develop for the History of Science Society, her own career path that has led to her to work at the National Humanities Center, as well as her ongoing mentorship work with PhD students who are interested in careers outside the academy. She argues for engaged humanities scholarship that reaches broad audiences and for the development of broad and useful career skills to demystify (and hopefully destress) the post-graduate job search. She will also discuss a hopeful and proactive approach to career exploration that emphasizes skill building over the search for The One true calling.
