The opportunity to pursue historical research and draw on their expertise is an important career goal of many history PhDs, but the pathways for doing so are not always clear. This webinar explores opportunities for research-focused careers in workplaces as diverse as the federal government, museums, libraries, think-tanks, and the private sector. Panelists will discuss how historical perspectives inform their work and how their positions give them opportunities to contribute to important scholarly conversations.
