U-M History PhD Alumni Conference


On November 21-22, 2022, U-M History hosted "U-M History in the Public Service: A Vision for the Humanities PhD in the 21st Century," a national conference aimed to chart a new path for humanities PhDs. 

This conference served as a debut for our expanding HistoryLab and PhD internship programs, and  also an opportunity to talk with PhD alumni and colleagues about how to expand, improve, and implement our goals.

The program featured U-M History PhD alumni operating in non-academic contexts—media companies and museums, journalism and publishing, government jobs and policy centers, foundations and non-profits—and those who work on public-facing projects in academic settings. The conference explored the array of career possibilities for humanities doctorates.
