What the heck can you do with a humanities Ph.D., anyways? In this session, “Humanities Beyond the Academy” working group mini-resident Chris Cornthwaite will talk about some of the avenues you can choose, from governments to NGOs to non-profits to tech. Attendees will come away with some new ideas for rewarding non-academic roles and have a clear sense of how to move into them.

Chris Cornthwaite completed a Ph.D. in religious studies, then went on to lead projects for a think tank and help build refugee programs with the federal government. Along the way, he launched Roostervane, a site dedicated to teaching lost grads to build amazing careers with their degrees. He founded a consulting company in 2020 and currently consults on SEO and content strategy with tech clients.
