The Center for Digital Humanities, in collaboration with GradFUTURES, is excited to launch How We Work, a new event series centered around the theme of academic work. What does it mean to work in “alternative” academia? What does it mean to pursue “traditional” academic jobs in today’s changing educational landscape? Breaking down the barrier between traditional and alternative, the series invites CDH staffers and postdocs to have open and honest conversations about their jobs, how they got there, and how they get them done.
These informal and interactive sessions will be held on Zoom and are open to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in all departments. Our first event will feature a conversation between CDH postdoctoral fellow Zoe LeBlanc and former postdoctoral fellow Jim Casey. Discussion will center on the postdoc experience and on the journey from graduate school, to postdoc, to professorship.
