Utrecht University Humanities Graduate Conference

Impact outside Academia (11.04)

Humanities Graduate conference presents one of the two parallel panels of the first day of the conference (11 April):

Impact outside Academia

This panel is focused on the way in which the humanities educate people not only for a life in academia but also for jobs in various domains of society. In this panel three PhD alumni will talk about how their PhD time relates to their current work and which valuable skills they brought with them from academia. They will reflect on the benefits and drawbacks of the field in which they work now. During this panel, there will be enough room for questions from (R)MA students about their future job perspectives.

The information on the parallel panel, “Impact in Academia” is accessible here.
