Are you heading to the American Historical Association meeting in Denver? We are too! Maren & Jen will be at Exhibit Hall with their own booth in Digital Alley talking all things #beyondprof. We’ll be giving away passes to the 4th Annual Beyond the Professoriate conference, so come by and say hi. And, if you want to chat with either one of us one-to-one, we’re offering free 30 minute consultations. Sign up here.
We’ve also planning a range of fun activities and we hope you’ll join us.
Our main event will be a #BeyondProf Friday Happy Hour from 5-6:30 held at Earls Restaurant, a few blocks from the convention center. This is open to anyone, but especially for people who are working in, or considering, careers beyond the professoriate. We’re asking people to RSVP so we can give a headcount to the restaurant.
Otherwise, we’ve got some informal events planned and you’re welcome to stop by. On Thursday evening, we’ll be hitting up the #twitterhistorians happy hour and then heading to Torchy’s Tacos for dinner around 7. Find us at the reception, DM us (@drmarenw for Maren or @FromPhDtoLife for Jen), or just head over to the restaurant.
Friday morning, we’ll be hosting a coffee hour at Little Owl Coffee from 8:30-9:30 and then spending the day at our booth. Then, of course, heading to the happy hour at Earls.
Saturday, you can find us in Digital Alley, and in the early evening, we’ll make our way to Union Station – a great local spot for coffee or drinks. Around 7 we’ll head to dinner at Aloy Modern Thai – we’ll have a reservation for 10 people, so DM if you want to join us. After that, we’ll take the party to Mile High Distillery, just around the corner.
You can download our full guide which includes AHA panels and events that might be of interest to beyond proffers.
Hope to see you in Denver!
