Blog LXV (65): The AHA is Coming, The AHA is Coming

Some one at AHA central must like me. Last week the people that run the AHA blog designated my panel at the annual meeting as the "Session of the Week." I must say, they have good taste.

Session of the Week: Careers in History

What can you dowith a history degree? More importantly, what can youdo with a history degree if you don’t want to teach?

History majors have diverse job options outside of academia. Learn from history professionals in a range of fields in session 3, Careers in History: The Variety of the Profession. This roundtable session, sponsored by the Graduate and Early Career Committee, brings together historians who work in preservation, documentary editing, museums, archives, and the military to speak about both specific aspects of their jobs as well as general advice for job seekers.

See below for the complete session information, and check out the other “Session of the Week” posts that have appeared on the blog, pulled from the content of the Program of the 125th Annual Meeting.

  1. I'm hearing a lot of programs are not conducting interviews at the AHA, but are doing so by Skype or other means instead.
