Are you a graduate student looking for a career in the digital humanities, but feeling unsure about how to proceed?

This panel showcases four graduates from humanities PhD programs who are now pursuing DH careers beyond the tenure track. They have generously agreed to share reflections on their professional trajectories to date, the day-to-day of their current work, and what graduate students hoping to follow in their footsteps need to know.

Following a one-hour panel, attendees will have the opportunity to join the panelists in break-out rooms for an informal Q&A. This event is primarily intended for graduate students and early career researchers but is open to anyone who registers, regardless of institutional affiliation or career stage.

DH Careers is a quarterly panel series showcasing the many professional paths for graduates with training in the digital humanities. You can watch our previous panel here. Our next panel, later this spring, will be on “DH Careers Beyond Academia".
