Attendees of Beyond Academia’s roundtable discussion and career fair are welcome to mingle with representatives of Georgetown Connected Academics and Georgetown’s Cawley Career Education Center in the Great Room of the New South Student Center immediately following Beyond Academia: Georgetown University’s Inaugural Career Fair for Humanities Scholars. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

The Modern Language Association has received generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to undertake a major project, Connected Academics: Preparing Doctoral Students of Language and Literature for a Variety of Careers. The project will run through August 2019 and will support initiatives aimed at demonstrating how doctoral education can develop students’ capacities to bring the expertise they acquire in advanced humanistic study to a wide range of fulfilling, secure, and well-compensated professional situations. Connected Academics will help prepare doctoral students—already well trained for postsecondary faculty positions—to use their humanistic training in a broader range of occupations than doctoral programs have, up to now, characteristically acknowledged and honored.
