Adjacent, Alternative and Post-Academic Careers in and around Classics 08/09/2017, Birmingham (Engla
The Women’s Classical Committee UK is organising a day of workshops and discussion groups to highlight the many and varied careers, jobs, pursuits, and opportunities that lie around and beyond an academic career.
We hope to build both confidence and a community at this event by making a space to share a variety of post-phd and early-career experiences. The focus will be empowering participants to see and seek out employment that values their particular skills and interests.
