Eleven Berkeley PhD alums working in a range of careers engage in conversation with current PhD students to help students gain insight into their own paths.
Sponsored by the Townsend Center, the Graduate Division, the Career Center, and Beyond Academia, this event showcases the variety of lives and livelihoods of humanities and humanistic social science PhDs.
After a keynote address by Kelly Anne Brown, assistant director of University of California Humanities Research Institute and leader of the Humanists@Work project, students will participate in a series of small group discussions with PhDs working in areas including federal agencies, writing and editing, tech, consulting, arts and culture entrepreneurship, non-profit management, academic administration, university fundraising, and high school teaching.
The workshop is open to UC Berkeley PhD students at any stage in the arts, humanities, or humanistic social sciences. Admission to the workshop is by application only. All applicants meeting the eligibility requirement above will be registered for the event, up to 50 students, on a first-come, first-served basis.
