On Wednesday, October 3, we were pleased to host a professional-development event for graduate students across the humanities with Dr. Daniel Hartnett, Associate Professor of Spanish at Kenyon College. His presentation, “Crafting a Profile for a Liberal Arts Job,” explained how students can plan their graduate study to build a diversified profile that can shine through in their application materials and set them on the path to tenure. He specifically addressed the culture and hiring practices of liberal-arts colleges, and drew on his own experience as a doctoral alum of the University of Virginia to communicate how graduate students can position themselves for success in a changing academic job market. There was ample time for questions and answers from students as well. Click to download the event flyer.
This event was sponsored by the Department of Spanish, Italian & Portuguese, the Department of English, the Department of French, and the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, in association with PhD Plus.
