Got questions about the careers of history PhDs? Join the AHA’s Emily Swafford @elswafford for a Twitter chat about “Where Historians Work,” our groundbreaking database of career outcomes for PhDs. Ask Emily questions and share your thoughts about this new tool using the hashtag #ahadata today July 18th, 2:00 – 3:00 PM EST. Direct-message questions to @AHAhistorians or email them to if you prefer to submit them privately.

In the first half hour, @AHAhistorians will tweet frequently asked questions about Where Historians Work, and @elswafford will answer them. During this time, we also invite followers and chat participants to chime in with their own questions.

Starting at 2:30, we will solicit feedback from followers. We want to know how you’ve been using the data and what you’d like to see in terms of other visualizations. We will ask:

  1. How have you used the data?
  2. Have you used the interactive features of the visualizations?
  3. Are there other visualizations you would like to see?
