"Work of American Studies" Workshop Series: Careers in and out of the Academy Monday, April 30th

Please join us on Monday, April 30th at 3:30pm in the Scott Hall Commons for the final "Work of American Studies" workshop on planning for careers in and out of the academy. Workshop Participants include Jennifer Pierce, who will talk about planning for academic careers, Dr. Ilene Alexander (Center for Teaching and Learning), who has a PhD in American Studies from the University of Iowa and will address strategies and resources for planning for nonacademic career tracks, and Kate Roberts, Senior Exhibit Developer at the Minnesota Historical Society, who will discuss work in public history and public humanities. We will devote much of the time to discussing graduate student questions and concerns. If you want to suggest specific questions or topics to be covered at the workshop, please e-mail them to Kevin Murphy (kpmurphy@umn.edu). This workshop will be relevant to students at all stages in the program.
