Seminar: ‘Medievalists Beyond the Academy’, Medieval Academy of American Graduate Student Webinar, 30th March 2022 19:00 EST

Join the Medieval Academy of America Graduate Student Committee on March 30th, 2022 at 7 pm ET for a panel on employment for medievalists outside of what we traditionally envision as the “academy” (university-based research and teaching). Each of our panelists received a PhD in a premodern subject, and each have successfully leveraged their training into a career that utilizes and expands upon their background as medievalists. From grant writing and archival management to secondary education and academic publishing, our participants represent a wide range of experience levels and professional opportunities. In this conversation moderated by leading independent scholar Laura Morreale, panelists will share their pathways from their PhD to their current position, followed by a live Q and A with questions submitted by our audience.

Panelists include

  • Dr. Jennifer Speed, Research Development Strategist at Princeton University
  • Dr. Anna Siebach-Larson, Director, Rossell Hope Robbins Library and Koller-Collins Center for English Studies at the University of Rochester
  • Dr. Ross Karlan, World Languages Educator at Geffen Academy
  • Dr. Rachel Ruisard, Project Editor at Oxford University Press
