Session Abstract

Publishing, particularly scholarly publishing, is a natural choice for those seeking employment outside of academia. Scholarly publishing is filled with ABDs and PhDs, many of whom have advanced degrees in history. During this panel, seven publishing professionals will describe their work, talk about how attending graduate school has helped them in their careers, and offer suggestions and advice.
