A workshop on the present and future uses of training in history.
Most history graduate students are still trained to become traditional research professors. Meanwhile, there have never been more opportunities for historians to work outside academia or in new roles in the university. In this workshop, graduate students, professors, university administrators, and non-academic professionals take stock of the place of historical thinking in public life and assess the roles and responsibilities of the historian today.
