The NACBS Graduate & Early Career Caucus are happy to announce the finalized schedule for its Fall 2021 Professional Development Series. We’ve done our best to vary the start times in hopes of accommodating folks in different time zones. Each session will have an extensive Q&A session, so please bring your questions!

 

“Using Digitized Primary Sources for Historical Research”

Saturday, October 30th at 11:00 am EST (4:00 pm GMT/8:00 am PST)

Simon Devereaux (University of Victoria), Michael de Nie (University of West Georgia), and Emily Rutherford (University of Oxford) will discuss how they approach digitized collections, especially in comparison to physical archives. They will also detail their specific experience with the Old Bailey Online, the British Newspaper Archive, and recently digitized British newsreels. This workshop constitutes one of four pre-conference virtual events hosted by the NACBS Executive Council, so the Zoom link will be available using your NACBS membership login on the Cambridge Core site.

 

“Navigating the Archive”

In-person roundtable at NACBS Atlanta

Susan Pennybacker (University of North Carolina), Paul Deslandes (University of Vermont), David Chan Smith (Wilfrid Laurier University), and Michael Silvestri (Clemson University) will discuss their strategies for both planning and executing successful archival trips, as well as common pitfalls graduate students and early career scholars should try to avoid.

 

“Careers Beyond the Professoriate”

December 3rd at 4:00 pm EST (9:00 pm GMT/1:00 pm PST)

Antoinette Burton (Professor of History, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and Director of Humanities Without Walls), Jessica Queener (Assistant Provost of Graduate Education Policy, West Virginia University), Joel Hebert (Federal Historian, Department of the Navy), and Elise Lipkowitz (Science Policy Analyst, National Science Foundation) will discuss their career trajectories and provide advice for graduate students and early career scholars interested in exploring jobs outside the professoriate.
