Graduate Student Workshops

  The Center for Medieval Studies regularly sponsors graduate student workshops that cover a variety of topics of interest to graduate students seeking career and professional advice. Past workshops have treated such themes as how to put together an academic curriculum vitae; how to write an abstract for a scholarly conference; and a series on “Mammon and Me,” which invited past graduates to discuss non-university professions open to those with M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in the Humanities.  Beginning in 2006/07, the Center co-sponsored a series on “Teaching the Middle Ages” with the Graduate English Medieval Area Group, that includes the following workshop sessions:
