Humanities Without Walls Workshop
In the summer of 2016 (July 18th through August 5th) I attended the Alternative Academic Career Summer Workshops for Pre-Doctoral Students in the Humanities in Chicago. This was not only an incredible opportunity to learn more about professions outside of traditional academia but also a great honor since only 30 students were chosen to become fellows and to participate.
