The AHA’s Career Diversity for Historians initiative has received recognition from national outlets for its efforts to expand the professional horizons for history PhDs. An article in the Chronicle of Higher Education profiles Kristina Markman, who was involved in the AHA’s Career Diversity pilot site program at the University of California, Los Angeles. The article’s author, Leonard Cassuto, spoke at the AHA’s June Career Diversity Faculty Institute. The Chronicle’s Vitae blog also published an article on the future of graduate education by Kevin Gannon, another participant in the AHA’s June Faculty Institute. Prof. Gannon describes the themes that emerged as faculty members from diverse institutions discussed concrete ways to combine “strategic preparation” for 21st-century careers with “the intensive intellectual commitment of PhD study.”
