Careers in the Humanities: A how-to workshop on exploring diverse career paths

Tue, Aug 11, 2020, 2:00 pm
Modern Language Association

What should a job search look like during a pandemic? How can you transfer and translate the skills you've gained from a PhD program as you consider more diverse career paths—and center your own wants and needs in the process? Join staff members from the MLA to learn how to define priorities for your job search, how to expand your network in a meaningful way, and other concrete steps you can take toward finding a job that speaks to you—as well as how the MLA can support you in your search and throughout your career. 

The Speakers:

Brian DeGrazia


Brian DeGrazia is the assistant director of programs and career services coordinator at the MLA.


Sonia Nayak


Sonia Nayak recently completed her PhD in English and is a research specialist at the MLA.
