Today, the Graduate Career Consortium (GCC), ImaginePhD, and the American Historical Association announced a new partnership designed to elevate GCC professionals and share best practices in humanities graduate student career and professional development. The partnership will create opportunities for mutual learning between GCC members and humanities faculty, staff, and students.

As part of this partnership, we are opening a call for proposals for career and professional development sessions to be presented by GCC members either in-person at the 2023 American Historical Association Annual Meeting in Philadelphia or online as part of the AHA's 2023 online programming.

  • Career and Identity
