Description

At Congress 2016, CARA sponsored a panel discussion on the topic of career diversity from the perspective of faculty and administrators ("Addressing Career Diversity for Medievalists") -- discussing how we can foster in graduate students and graduate programs the wide variety of careers for which an advanced degree in medieval studies can prepare students. The panel elicited a great conversation that we have decided to continue at Congress 2017--this time from the perspective of graduates who have successfully found careers outside of the academy. We plan to have four panelists explain how graduate work in medieval studies prepared them for the non-faculty jobs they have, how they located and applied for these jobs, and how their employment outside of the academy is enhanced by their having obtained advanced degrees in medieval studies.
