"Graduate education in the humanities is changing.  Most humanities PhDs will not secure tenure-track jobs.  Discussions about how to respond to this state of affairs are vital.  The Higher Ed workshop is where those discussions are taking place.  The workshop is an important forum for exploring graduate student professional development in the twenty-first century."
