ARISC Panel: Strategizing Academic Placement

The American Research Institute of the South Caucasus (ARISC) invites you to attend the

2021 Forum on Strategizing Academic Placement

Friday, 5 November 2021

12:00 PM (US eastern)


This forum will be a 75-minute discussion and Q&A session on different pathways in academic placement for graduate students specializing in the South Caucasus, Russian and Eurasian Studies, and adjacent fields. This forum will broadly address the academic job search process, from identifying and locating open positions, to preparing application portfolios, to interview strategies. Panelists for this forum include Dr. Naomi Caffee (Department of Russian, Reed College), Dr. Christina Maranci (History of Art and Architecture, Tufts University), and Dr. Selin Nugent (Institute for Ethical AI, Oxford Brookes University).

Panelists will briefly introduce the forum, sharing their own experiences leveraging graduate degrees across the humanities and social sciences into careers in the North American and international academies. For the remainder of the forum, participants will have the opportunity to ask their own questions on academic placement and professional development. Panelists will be prepared to answer questions on professorial and postdoctoral employment across a variety of fields, including history, art history, anthropology, languages and literature, area studies, international relations, and more.

Although this panel is geared toward graduate students and postdoctoral fellows specializing in the South Caucasus and Russian and Eurasian Studies, we welcome interested participants from any field and at any stage of their academic careers. This forum will take place on Friday, 5 November 2021, 12:00 PM eastern.

This event is free and open to all.
