Description

This roundtable will provide a venue for graduate students and early career scholars (ECSs) to learn about the variety of professional positions available to medievalists and the best strategies for pursuing them. It is one of the aims of the MAA-GSC’s council this year to foster a more inclusive discussion surrounding ECSs and the challenges faced by medievalists once they have completed their graduate studies and may be left, so to speak, without a safety net. Participants will discuss navigating traditional and non-traditional career paths available to medieval studies graduates, with ample opportunity for questions and answers. It is our hope that such a panel will provide the much-needed and often-neglected guidance for medievalists who are keen to enter professional fields that capitalize on their graduate training and provide them with the tools and resources to excel in their future careers as medievalists. The roundtable will be co-sponsored by The Medieval Academy of America Graduate Student Committee (MAA-GSC) and the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS). Courtney Krolikoski
