Start your semester right with this new workshop at the Woodruff Library on January 20, 2011:
Digital Scholarship and the Job Market: A Discussion for Grad Students in the Humanities and Social Sciences
12:00–1:00 p.m., Jones Room, Woodruff Library
Space is limited, so register now at http://bit.ly/dsjobmarket
Sponsors: Emory University Libraries Digital Scholarship Commons and the Laney Graduate School
We'll be joined by:
- Michael Elliott, Emory's Senior Associate Dean of Faculty and Winship Distinguished Professor of English
- Elizabeth Loizeaux (via Skype), the University of Maryland's Associate Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, and Professor of English. Dean Loizeaux was head of the 2010 University of Maryland search committee that hired four tenure-track professors in the digital humanities.
We've asked Deans Elliott and Loizeaux to address questions like:
- Will the academic job market reward my investment of time to become proficient in digital humanities?
- How "digital" do I have to be to qualify as a digital humanist?
- What digital activities will have the biggest payoff for me on the job market?
- Are tenure-track jobs going to be available for digital humanists?
- How am I supposed to do all this and write my dissertation?
This is the first in a series of workshops cosponsored by the Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC) and the Laney Graduate School. Registration will soon be available for others, including Creating a Web Presence I (February), Creating a Web Presence II (February), #alt-ac: Alternative Academic Careers in the Digital Humanities (February), Text Encoding (March), and Geographical Information Systems (April).
