DLCL 311: Professional Workshop

This course will introduce second-year graduate students to the professional dimensions of the study of literature and culture. Our primary focus will be on developing skills that will help you not only to complete your graduate program efficiently and successfully, but also to think ahead and prepare for your transition into employment. While our main focus will be the transition to work within academia, as a junior faculty member, or in another position, we will also dedicate time to skills that are transferable to professions outside of academia. On the one hand the workshop is very practical, addressing questions such as: how to turn a seminar paper into an article and find a venue for it; how to think ahead for the academic and non-academic job market, with a breakdown by year of study; how to think about creating a teaching portfolio for yourself; and so on. At the same time, we will also seek to engage with the 'meta' questions: we will step back from the tasks we are regularly engaged with in order to think more critically about the nature of the fields we work in and the goals of the humanities, the profession of graduate student/faculty as a craft, which has specific components. Supervised by the graduate affairs committee of the DLCL. May be repeated for credit.
