Life After Academia 

The difficulty of securing tenure-track positions in humanities disciplines for recent PhDs is well known. Accordingly, the University of Tennessee Humanities Center, in cooperation with the departments of English, History, Modern Foreign Languages, and Philosophy, invited a well-known professional employment strategist to campus.  Dr. Maren Wood provided an overview of positions available to PhD students both in and outside the academy.  In addition to presenting a general overview of the available possibilities in a lecture format, Dr. Wood provided individual hour-long consultations with prospective advanced graduate students.
