Life as a Humanist
Friday, Apr 6, 2018 | 2:00 pm

To showcase the variety of lives and livelihoods of humanities and humanistic social science PhDs, the Townsend Center, Graduate Division, Career Center, and Beyond Academia invite eleven Berkeley PhD graduates working in a range of careers to lead small group discussions with current PhD students. These discussions give doctoral students the opportunity both to learn about others’ career experiences and to gain insight into their own paths.


After a keynote address by Kelly Anne Brown, Assistant Director of University of California Humanities Research Institute and leader of the Humanists@Work project, students participate in a series of small group discussions facilitated by Berkeley PhDs working in areas including federal agencies, writing and editing, tech, consulting, arts & culture entrepreneurship, non-profit management, academic administration, university fundraising, and high school teaching.



UC Berkeley PhD students at any stage in the arts, humanities, or humanistic social sciences. Admission to the workshop is by application process only. All applicants meeting the eligibility requirement above will be registered for the event, up to 50 students, on a first-come, first-served basis.

The deadline has been extended! Applications will be accepted until event is full or April 2.
