“Thinking Ahead: Humanities Careers, Mentorship, and Individual Development Plans”
Over the course of the 2018-2019 AY, Kylie Seltzer has worked as the Graduate Student Assistant for the “Humanities Careers” Project, which aims to diversify graduate student training and mentorship in the Dietrich School. In this colloquium, she will discuss the format, goals, and results of this project, with special attention paid to the types of experiences, skills, and advising approaches it aims to make common at Pitt. Although HAA has been a leader in implementing innovative graduate student education practices, this colloquium will be the venue for a discussion about how we, as a department and a community, can address our weak points and continue to spearhead versatile humanistic training.
