In this post, Dr. Kristina Markman and Dr. Michael Ryan discuss what role departments have in preparing students for humanities careers. Dr. Markman and Dr. Ryan emphasize the importance of what language departments use when discussing non-faculty trajectories, addressing a perceived “stigma” attached to employment outside the professoriate, and the need for students and departments to work together to prepare doctoral students for a broad range of post-graduation outcomes.
