Livestream Crossroads: The Future of Graduate History Education

Watch Beyond the Professoriate co-hosts Jen (that’s me) and Maren, plus Day 2 speaker Heidi Scott Giusto present live at Drew University in Jew Jersey on the topic of “Achieving Success in Non-faculty Careers: Learning to Navigate an Uncertain Job Market.” The conference is livestreaming our panel, and we’d love to have you join us, virtually! (Or in person, if you happen to be at the conference.) This is happening on Friday, 11 March, 1:00-2:30pm EST.

This will be the first time I’m meeting Heidi in person and the first time I’m seeing Maren since 2004! Yeah, we’ve co-produce Beyond the Professoriate without ever meeting in the flesh.

If you’re a tweeter, you can join in the conversation at #FutureofHistory. Other live stream events may interest you, too. More information via the conference organizers:

As part of our effort to make the discussions at Crossroads: The Future of Graduate History Education accessible for all historians, we are happy to announce we will offering a free livestream of the keynote addresses and featured sessions.
