The Alternative Careers for PhDs in the Humanities conference will be held at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio on September 8-9, 2017.

The graduate students in the Department of Comparative Studies at The Ohio State University welcome proposals around the topic of alternative careers for PhDs in the humanities.

In the wake of recent and widespread discussions on alternative PhDs, this interdisciplinary conference seeks to address the different opportunities and initiatives available for PhD students in the humanities for careers in non-academic contexts. The aim is to bring together a wide audience, including scholars, students currently writing their dissertations, as well as PhDs working in non-academic positions, to discuss the different possibilities, challenges, constraints, experiments, resources, types of research—both the successes and failures—of conducting research and writing dissertations in relation to non-academic contexts (NGOs, local government, publishing, social and cultural organizations, educational outreach, the private sector, activism and participatory research, and so on).

The conference committee welcomes proposals from graduate students, recent postgraduates, and early career researchers in the humanities for traditional or non-traditional formats, including but not limited to roundtable discussions, workshops, and traditional paper presentations for no longer than 20 minutes. They also encourage applicants who cannot attend to consider the possibility of participating by videoconferencing (such as Skype).

Please send a one page proposal (250-300 words) along with a one page bio to csalternativephds@gmail.com by August 15, 2017.
